growing in the sun light humboldt county

The 2008 outdoor marijuana growing season has officially started. To confirm, watch closely for sunburned dreadlock hippies roaming town, extra dirty pickup trucks loaded with gardening gear, and long lines at Pierson's and Target's garden center.

Outdoor pot growers generally start planting their crops in May and sometimes as late as June, but there will always be a handful or more who plant as early as April. As a result of this, rooted plant cuttings become a hot commodity in the springtime, with most outdoor growers getting theirs from indoor growing friends and neighbors.

Popular strains this outdoor season? Whatever growers can get their hands on, as usual. Trainwreck and Diesel will always be popular, and Master Kush seems to be making a comeback this year. We remember a few years back some amazing outdoor strains like Soul Train, Romulan, and Mango, but we're not sure if those are still around.

If this year is anything like the seasons past, Humboldt County residents can expect yet another massive increase in the number of pot growers occupying the hills, the number of CAMP choppers flying overhead, and yet another massive increase in the amount of seized bud come summertime through harvest.

Last year the Humboldt Sheriff's Drug Enforcement Unit nabbed over 355,000 outdoor plants, 37,419 indoor plants, and about 900 pounds of processed bud in their eradication efforts. It was the biggest year ever, but it's always the biggest year ever because there are always more and more growers planting bigger and bigger crops.

In comparison, authorities only seized about 100,000 plants in 2006. Yeah, that's a beefy increase in only one year. The 2007 total was estimated to be worth $1 billion had it made it to the streets. Does that mean they removed $1 billion from Humboldt County's economy?

how long does it take for marijuana to start to nugg

flowering begins after the summer solstice when the days start to get shorter. you should see flowers on the plants by the end of July, and harvest season starts in september all the way through the end of october depending on what your weather is like and how long you can manage to let them go before finally cutting them down

I used to do some indoor strains in a greenhouse. I'd grow trainwreck, bigwreck, diesel, kush, whatever was available. The trick I found was to veg them out in a proper veg room under lights for a couple of months, like May-June. Then I'd put them outside or in the greenhouse on July 1, or maybe just the first week of July. This triggered flowering quickly, just like you do indoors, and I had great results. Everything finishes up by middle or end of september, and you get excellent yields. It's just like doing indoor, only you get to use the sun instead of your lamps!

Snowcap did your plants flower out well?

if you live in Humboldt july is too late to plant due to CAMP, you want to plant early and harvest early before the camp season even begins a good grower will have completed his first couple harvests! marijuana is harmless and growing it should not be a crime! dont drink budweiser beacause they support CAMP with money! because they want you to drink lots of beer instead of smoking pot! its a conspiracy! think about who wants pot illegal! beer companies and cigarette companys, doctors want you on pills along with the pharmeceutical companies. ive had friends die from taking too many pills but never has anyone died from cannabis. stop the lies!

you want to start budding them when they are 18-24 inches tall depending on where u live... so you should be able to pull some decent size buds off... if not when its the end of grow season put it inside under a high pressure sodium light 12 hours on 12 hours off till u get nice ass buds... works everytime... good luck with your grow:)
