Who has done a grow 100% outdoors start to finish. How was it done? I ask this because I've tried and failed a few times. I am able to start them inside and finish them outside but seems like every time i try to do the full course outdoors the seedlings never make it. I am not able to start indoors this year so what I'm looking for are people willing to share there proven methods, stealth is preferred, maybe some new ideas will form along the way but i will start with the ideas I have for now. 1. Compact seedling plots planted over prepared and back-filled holes basically this idea is to dig and prepare a hole like you would for regular outdoor but to plant 15-25 seeds and weed out the weakest (I am using bag-weed-seed) leaving 2-4 seedlings for probability of females when sex is determined of the remaining remove all males and weak females. My year goal weight is 1-4 pounds 1lbs= 16oz or 453.5g I average an ounce or 2 per plant outdoor so to hit the 1lb mark I would need to have approx 10 successful plants. I grow guerrilla style no big plots with rows and rows just a couple here and there so 10-40 mini plots would be a lot to manage and consider you need to plant 3x what you want to harvest to meet your goal outdoor, because of loss to animals and weather bugs mold other unimaginable terrors. this way doesn't seem manageable with the acreage I'm working with about 6 acres of woods also, I wouldn't be able to get an early start which is also a concern because I live in Michigan. 2. Pop bottle green house starters would allow me to start sooner there easy to conceal but larger quantity's will be harder more prep work. Seedlings could outgrow the pop bottle quickly still have to prepare just as many holes. 3. Cold frame. mini green house, benefit of early start but harder to hide more seedlings could be done in one spot. These are my current ideas I have not yet tested them. If you have any experience with similar situations please share what you know.
