    Hey guys. I have been popping a few of the new seeds as the mothers got clipped. Decided to start a new thread to help me keep track of them.

    I'm outdoors from the start, with all natural light. That means they will start to flower as soon as they reach sexual maturity. I'm going to do a Spring crop vegging with lights, so I hope to learn about cold weather growing with this run.

    I had put a few seeds in paper towels at work, then put them in a big pot when they started to crack. Transplanted these four into pots a few days later. This is from 10-8-16, and to the best of my knowledge, they are Hurricane Head from the GN patch.

    Also from 10-8-16. This is a tray jumper seed, so not sure exactly what it is. But it will be BST1 {Hurricane Head} or BST2 {Peach or Rotten Stinking Bastard}

    I sunk the pots in some marsh grass on 10-12-16.

    DSCF1740.JPG I was at the camp the night of 10-9-16, and wanted to plant some seeds, but I had forgot to bring potting soil. The GB patch was nearby, and I had recently pulled up a GV1 male, so there was a open spot in the trench. I tilled up the soil and planted a few Peach seeds. That is BST2 male {FP} X BST2 female {FP}. Had first sprout on 10-17-16. There was another sprout today, which I put in a coffee cup and moved to the marsh grass. I will keep the first one in the GB patch, but move the rest of them as they sprout.

    I put four Hurricane Head {FP} seeds in coffee cups on 10-13-16. Had the first sprout from them this morning. I sunk it in the garden, where it will get full sun.

    Around lunch today I was heading out to do a couple miles of hiking. I had some BST2 {GN} bud that I was carrying to my hiking stash spot. I made a snap decision to plant four of the seeds. The pots are not marked, but I will remember the kind of pots used. {with help from this thread}

    Glad to have you. I've never done any winter growing before, so it will be new to me. I just like having a few plants going.

    I topped off the Peach sprout with potting soil this morning. Now you don't see that tell tale white ring.

    I also added soil to the Peach sprout in the GB patch.

    I had to deal with dried bud from 6-8 different plants this morning. After I was through I saw a few seeds in the bottom of one of the brown paper bags. The odds are they are Hurricane Head, Peach or Rotten Stinking Bastard, but there were a few early buds from my strain too, so no real way to know. I put the five best looking ones in soil today.

    There was a little more grasshopper damage this morning. I gave the plants and the area around them a good spraying with Neem oil.

    I've been watering these plants every other day with half a cup of 11-2-1 to the gallon. {all six of them might use a quart}

    I like to always be growing something also
    I never tried outdoors in the winter except in a covered shed that was uncovered in the spring and summer unless I was doing light dep to get more harvests in a warm season

    Last year we had a couple of light frost in early November, then didn't have another until mid December. I'm hoping the plants will be toughened up by the time I do get frost. Most years we have a night or two in the teens. Not sure what that will do to plants.

    I've never done a light dep crop. I'm trying to do less weed work. But we are talking about getting a greenhouse built this year, so you never know.

    Our low for the year is usually 18-20F, but that is only for one or two nights. Maybe 8-10 nights a year in the 20's. We do have heavy frosts because we have such heavy dews.

    A quick look at weatherunderground says the average high/low for December is 64/41. January 62/39. February 65/42 and March 73/48.

    Thanks. We have had lows in the 40's this week. Growth will be slower until it warms back up.

    I had a small winter garden with similar temps last year... ran into a few problems. Hope it all runs smooth.
