WHAT THE BUD IS GOING ON IN MAINE?

Hey, how's everyone doing? I hope everyone is staying COVID-19 free and well medicated. Well, the last couple of days in Maine have been rather boring and snowy. Last Thursday into Friday, we received 10 inches of wet, heavy snow that literally bent massive trees over and caused statewide power outages.

The storm was no April Fool's joke as it shut down almost everything that is already almost shut down due to COVID-19. I found myself locked down at home with no power, no internet, and no heat for hours, but I did have a good stockpile of cannabis, which I think should be in every natural disaster kit.

After getting baked and throwing my grandmother's quilt over myself, I got my camera phone and trimming scissors out and figured that I would take a few snaps and snips to see what my harvest of F1 Sour Diesel is going to look like, which is getting chopped tomorrow on Easter Sunday. Fuck the Easter Bunny, he doesn't need to stop here unless he wants to help trim (or has some dank weed), which I hate doing!


At Least the Indoor Growing Conditions in Maine are Good!

This is the third day of darkness, and we are done flushing, which I'm so glad is done. My plant sits two feet below the bottom of the tent opening, so I have to use a turkey baster in order to suck the overflow out; however, the extra 2-feet of ceiling height inside my tent that I gained is well worth the agony of bending over while squeezing a kerosene pump for 30 minutes a day for 10 straight days.

I've been growing weed for a while now, and I've never seen sugar leaves with such a high concentration and degree of trichomes ever before in all of my years of growing. This also reinforces my decision to trust a breeder that I never met before when I was looking for the original strain of Sour Diesel.


WTF IS THAT SMELL?

I'm not sure who else here uses such a barbaric tactic as the one illustrated in the pic below, but this is what I learned from one of my father's hippy friends from the late 70s into the 80s when Bob Segar was the Midnight Rider playing on a Pioneer Reel-to-Reel in my parent's living room while I was shooting everything in sight with BB guns and being grounded on a consistent basis.


"THE DEATH PUNCH" / 5-1 PAINTER'S TOOL


01.jpg

When I first saw this, I was about 10-years old standing in Oral's garden, don't ask me why his name is Oral, but as fucked up as it is (his parents must have been into some crazy shit to name their kid Oral), this dude packed a 9mm, was no joke, and grew the best weed in the State of Maine during the 70s and early 80s before helicopters and the Maine DEA raided his fields. But, he already knew they were coming, he had more surveillance cameras than they did at the time.

This is what Oral called the death punch, except I saw monkey wrenches, screwdrivers, and pieces of deer bones injected into the stalks of his plants. When I asked the reason behind the madness, he told me about the 3-days of darkness and death punch. The death punch occurs 24-hrs before the chop, and what it does is stress the plant out even more than killing the lights does. The results are an increase in the final production of trichomes, which makes the end product even more potent. So basically, cut the bottom of the stalk and jam whatever you got into the middle of it the day before the chop.

Please stay tuned for the Easter Sunday's harvest of Sour Diesel, and thank you for reading my post! We do grow more in Maine than just spuds, some of us grow some dank buds! Peace out, and I hope all of my stoner friends stays safe and medicated during these trying and desperate times.

This death punch hurts my heart. :(
The father of a friend of mine told me he pours them with ice water the day before he cuts them. I think I'm gonna go with this method. Sounds more like wellness than what your friend Oral does. But he definitely seems like an interesting character. :)

Blowing some warm air your way.

Thanks @Mayb, he was an interesting character and just one of my father's crazy friends! I have heard of the ice water, but never tried it:D

·
·

yes, right. Your father's friend, sorry. I think I'll try the ice water method next time.
But now that you've got so much of it outside your window … :D

Wow ... that is some crazy crazy weather you’re having way down south of us here in Canada.

·

No shit right? I've seen recent pics from @D00k13 where he lives in Canada and shit looks like spring. The last I knew, Canada was north of Maine, but you wouldn't know it! LOL

·

Yeah @d00k13 is out on Vancouver Island and it’s beautiful out there. But even here up in Eastern Ontario ... way North of you.... there's no snow and some flowers are popping up. You are in some weird Polar Vortex twilight zone down there.

lol. Maybe Orals experiments opened some kind of portal …

Never know? Lol

Maybe aliens smoking space nugs have something to do it with it? LOL

Wish I was closer to Maine so I could be smoking on some F1 Sour Diesel. Or at the very least grab a couple cuts...

No joke, I would give you some cuts! This shit is going to be fire, I can already tell:D
