I feel like I just killed my best friend...
    #650437 - 12/10/12 02:51 PM (4 years, 1 day ago)

Sometimes you just have to accept when things have to change, and do what you have to do to keep afloat. Yesterday was one of those days for me. The end of one chapter and the start of another...

I cut down all my plants last night and packed all my equipment away. Fuck, just typing that made me tear up... Since moving out of my home and into my parents for the time being, I've had a horrible time finding a safe home for my garden (my parents run a boarding house, and CANNOT have it here). The most recent place I moved them into, 2 days later the homeowner was put on probation and will have random PO visits, starting today. So they had to go, and being in such a conservative part of the state, I was unable to find a suitable home for them to be moved to. I had no choice but to cut them down and pack up the equipment.

Fortunately when one chapter ends, another starts. While my parents can't have the cannabis in the home, there is no issue with having a vegetable garden in the basement. I'll be starting with organic Arugula and organic heirloom cherry tomatoes, the lettuce under flouro's and the tomatoes under a MH thouie. We've been working pretty closely the past month with The Hub, which is a local co-op storefront with their own kitchen, and I'll be able to market the vegetables there. Farmers receive an unheard of 85% of the sales of their wares. I'm also going to be doing more research into mycology, because gourmet mushrooms are also a decently high dollar crop that I can grow...


Even though there's still plenty of new learning for me to do with this new direction our lives are headed, I'm so fucking depressed I just had to get this off my chest. At least I've got enough to keep me busy, with The Hub and their 20'x95' greenhouse they just bought (they're fighting with city council right now on whether or not they should be allowed to use Tilapia with their aquaponics system in it) and all my own growing I still want to do...

It's just so hard to get motivated after last night though....:feelsbadman:

I feel you man.  Last year, I had a small grow in an apartment; about 30 days into flower I had a dozen beautiful ladies when suddenly the complex starts making excuses to access the apartment.
They "checked the fire suppressor system", "changed the filters", and had to "check the furnace" all within 2 weeks, all on separate visits.  They gave more than 24 hours notice each time, but when the "furnace check" got scheduled, I got sketched out and tore down the whole grow.
It hurts, but better to live to grow another day.

At least you had something that was sort of salvageable... Everything I had was still in veg. :sad:

But yea, that's pretty tough, I'm sure.

I'm looking at some gourmet mushroom info though, and it's sayin' I can get as much as 6,000 pounds a year out of a 200 square foot space... Man, even half of that would be awesome! At $7 a pound, that's $21,000 a year!

Naw man... I actually thought about getting ahold of you in case you'd be able to do something with em, but I had been battling mites (I realized during the move that they were back), and I didn't want to pass that off to you... I probably shoulda checked anyways, but yesterday was all sorts of too much stress...

Keep your head up man, you'll land on your feet

I wont see you on shroomery probably cause I dont go on there very much, but if you have any mycology questions feel free to ask me. Ive got 6-7 years experience under my belt and have a pretty good grasp on mushroom cultivation process.

I know some people who did the same thing, growing mushrooms, and selling them to the stores. You really can make some decent money..shroomery is a great place for info, same dude I'm talking about is an obsessive poster there..fungi perfecti has some great books for sale.
I'd be bawling like a baby if I had to cut my plants down..my condolences. Good  luck w/ your venture :smile:

I could definitely use some help on the HELLA no0bish stuff... I'm just getting started, and I'm pretty damn lost, especially when it comes to figuring out what all the terms mean that people use... Tried to PM ya but I couldn't find the button. Are you one of the fuckers that are banned from PMing?

Abbreviations do me no good without knowing what the terms themselves mean... This thread is bookmarked on my comp, and it does me zero good at the moment. That's why I was asking for SPECIFIC directions and information.
