I'll put up a few pics in the next day or two. Most of the plants have hit the eves of the house over the past couple days. I've got some drooping leaves on Mrs. Centennial on the house and I'm not sure why...

Looks like those things are looking over the house to scope what they are going to attack. Those are impressive plants... Excited yet scared for when the time comes all 96 of my plants are like that

Nice looking family photo there!

And after seeing those ropes the way they are, I can't help but envision a lighted Xmas light display interweaved and you playing trans Siberian orchestra at night for the passers by!!! Happy Hoppidays!

Hey Ted,


I just picked up a liter of BioBloom on Amazon. Pumped to use it this season on my 3rd years.

When will you switch to this fertilizer?

I have a lot of sidearms formed right now, so should begin to see flowers to start forming. Not sure if I should wait until later in the cycle or not.

Thanks!
