So rearranged and did an inventory check on my seeds last night, its time to start growing. Planting my first pips today. A little early, but the early bird catches the worm.
Officially we are legally allowed growing in South Africa as cannabis cultivation has been decriminalized for private use. I am going to try and grow within the legal parameters set out by our knowledgeable leading party. I think its something between 4-6 plants per adult, per household, and 1.2 kilograms of dry matter at home. My beds are ready!
So a couple things different this year. I will be purchasing local cattle manure compost for this season, and using my compost as a filler. I am also going to be purchasing some soil conditioners like worm castings, bone meal, rock dust and perlite for better soil mixes.
We are at about 10% of our rain water levels and still waiting for the spring rains. So for now, filtered borehole water is going to have to do.
I am starting off with some homemade lemon cream kush, several auto’s and a couple cheese plants. Later on, mid-September I will plant the rest and the best.
I have made a simple workspace to easily be able to mix soil, water and teas. Just need to put together a little bubbler system and start brewing.
Any advice, questions are welcome. Wish me luck, going to need it.
