Early voting and mail-in voting numbers seem to be matching 2018 levels, and you might recall that was a very good year for Democrats. But of course there’s no way of knowing who all those votes are for, and let’s face it, Republicans are also really juiced to vote this year. So no complacency, okay? Keep voting and make sure your friends and family vote too.

Another mass shooting in Colorado, at a King Soopers which is everyone’s basic grocery chain around here. And I’ve just gotten my first vaccination and was really looking forward to doing my own shopping again. Maybe not so much anymore. While reading some reports from folks on the scene, recounting how they always look for the exits when they go into a store, I realized something I had not recognized before in my own behavior. And that is, ever since Aurora, which was the horrific shooting in a Colorado theater that you might recall, ever since then when I go …Continue reading →
We’re having a LOT of spring snow. Much needed water, but ouch the shoveling! Still piling up. This is the patio where I like to sit, in other seasons. #cowx pic.twitter.com/11vfrJm1u0 — jnfr (@jnfr) March 14, 2021
That’s how long our house has kept itself in quarantine so far. And today I got my first shot of the Moderna vaccine here in Colorado. Mr. J isn’t eligible yet, so we’ll keep ourselves in quarantine until we both have as full immunity as we can get. Guess who else got her shot today? Dolly Parton. Dolly gets a dose of her own medicine. @VUMChealth pic.twitter.com/38kJrDzLqC — Dolly Parton (@DollyParton) March 2, 2021 She is such a lovely person and I can’t thank her enough for helping to fund the vaccine I received today. Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine…
My third state-legal marijuana grow is happening now. Going well so far. These were started from seed, so no idea whether I have a female this time. We still have plenty of bud left from Grow Two, which was harvested in Feb/Mar of this year, so we’re happy in any case.
I prefer to grow marijuana in soil, and that’s what I will write about here and in my book. The segment I’m writing now is on tools, and the first tools to consider are the pots you grow your plants in. After the jump is a first draft of information about choosing types and sizes of pots to grow marijuana indoors. Like everything I write, this information is geared to new gardeners in Colorado, where home growing is now legal in certain amounts and in certain situations. This information does not apply in any state other than my own.
And this second grow is 112 days from planting the seeds. The plants have been in a 12-hour light regime for 51 days. The buds are growing nicely. Pistils are browning, as you can see, but the trichomes are still clear, which means they are not mature yet. I estimate another month before harvest.
The buds are growing, with lots of pistils but no trichomes showing yet. We’re probably six to eight weeks from having any mature bud from this grow. I grow using a technique called “low stress training”, which I want to talk about in some depth. I don’t have time this week, but I did want to leave you a picture at least. More soon.
