    Hey Blazed,
    East central Ohio here. I used to try to get my plants out as early as possible but ,as you know the weather can dick you around until the 1st of June. If you can veg your plants indoors for a while here is what I do;

    Plant seed on Mothers Day, May 10th. ( multiple seeds 10" pots)

    Veg 24/0 for 3 wks

    Then 12/12 until sexed

    Plant outside on or before June 21st, longest day of the year(summer solstice)

    As soon as you can ID your females, pick the best one out of the pot and cut all the others. You don't want it to go into full flower. It's gonna slowdown for a week or 2 so pick the hardiest lookin one, thats why I plant multiples in the pot. More to choose from.

    Good luck.

    It works pretty well. Still gives you 120 days until Halloween.(weather permitting)
    I don't like having to babysit them early in the season, covering for frost and such.

    The most awesome fertilizer for reefer is fresh PIGSHIT. 50 lbs in the bottom of the hole with 2 cubic feet of potting soil on top.

    if your planning on putting them in the ground you should dig your holes and bring in your own potting soil....if not use 5+ gallon pots.

    the bigger the hole the bigger the root system....bigger roots = bigger plant/yield.

    5 gal buckets work best in swamps, drill holes in the bottom outside and set in 6" of water in cattail swamps. Good camo in the cattails and you don't have to water. Put 3" of limestone in the bottom, 10 lbs of manure, the rest potting soil.
