Backyard Cannabis Farming Episode 10: Saving Broken Branches from Death

in cannabis •  9 months ago  (edited)


Getting back in the Steemit swing feels a little weird to me. I don't know if its because I haven't posted in a while (because of the manna update), the fact that I have been super busy with other things, or both, but I definitely feel extremely behind with my online projects. This break came at an inopportune time for me, however I really did need the break to catch up with other phases of my life, mainly organizing a conscious Hip-Hop mix-tape, and knocking out a bunch of cannabis work (since all the plants are still coming down).


In today's episode, I display the beauty of the Monsterberry flowers as they are almost ready to be harvested, and how I saved almost completely broken branches with huge colas on them, by reattaching the broken limbs with bamboo and ties. In the video, I state that these plants are not going to be ready for two to three weeks, however partly due to the weather, and partly due to the flowers finishing earlier than expected, I have already taken most of my backyard plants down and hung them to dry this evening (9-30-2018). I do however still have three plants still in pots, that are now being covered by a canopy just in case it rains again this evening, or tomorrow when I am at work.

It rained unexpectedly last night, as it often does in Portland this time of year, and after seeing one spec of mold on a top cola as a result, I knew it was time to take them down. More on that in the next couple episodes.

They look magnificent in that sunlight.

Great looking plants!

The heavy rain and wind did a number on our outdoor plants. Even with stakes we had some stems snap at the base.

Hopefully we'll also get to see our buds match some of your beauties.



I hope so as well, looking forward to seeing what your beauties create.


Thanks! We're sort of researching the the pros and cons of harvesting weeks ahead of schedule. To avoid bud rot / freezing temps.

If we had to bubble hash this crop that would be one heck of a lot of pollen and RSO. :D

Happy Growing!


It will be all good.

I love the lens flare in that second picture. It really makes those buds look heavenly, as all buds should lol.


Thank you, one day I will have a proper camera.
