the poppy that came up in my yard is hanging in. Hasn't shown signs of blooming yet. It prolly won't get big. I'm not really taking care of it and it has a lot of weeds/grass to compete with.

Burning everything off.

Getting it broken up.

A little finer, all done with a shovel and a hoe. All burnt material has been turned over.

Sowed some Poppy seeds today in the prepared bed, along with some wildflower mix, and some celome. Back in the day I would hide small marijuana plants in a bed like this. And I probably would here but that security light throws the light cycle into a perpetual 24/7. Really don't know how everything will react here like this but here goes.

Dusted off the strip lights, should be good to get them going.

Placed a piece of the mylar insulation on top to reflect the light downward.

Having some fungus issues. Letting it dry a bit and using a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water, also turned a fan on.

Here's the Basil experiment, seems to be good.

Thinking I've got the fungus beaten back just a little, the fan really helped. About a quarter inch tall.

You are a busy man there Myco. You should have a colorful spring and summer!

I will only have cactus for flowers this year!  Will do more next year!

Thanks brother, if I wasn't almost out of cacti I'd send you a San Pedro, maybe next fall. They have large beautiful flowers, and you always can chop a section off and see God while you take a walk in the next plane of existence but I digress. Hopefully many flowers this year.

At some point today I plan to move the grow chamber I built out to the garage (I've named it El Chapo because it's short and I have to name everything) going to put the poppies out there when big enough, maybe make a flower factory out of it, maybe even start some veggies. Also will create plausible deniability in case I have to explain away any growing questions that might arise in the great drama of life. Good time's.

Here's some seedlings, these are the ones I left alone lol. Do you remember the abominable snowman from the old Bug's Bunny cartoons. I'm kinda like that guy. So leaving them be, started some more that I will ignore. Gonna buy some seeds next time I'm at the store.

I use a term, "benevolent neglect"

I'm applying that to my weed, it's doing well lol.

We'll I'm not going to worry about Germination anymore. I've got about 3 million little seedlings. These cool showers and cool nights have really brought them out.

post-2858-0-68577500-1490633613_thumb.jpg

The following shot's have several seedlings in each, they are really small.

I had 3 million seedlings, I'll be lucky to have 3 after that hailstorm. It never fails. I'm the Murphy's law poster child.

that was the first wave of seeds to come up... there will be more. And survivors

it is all numbers with small seed. Huge numbers.

I'm going to do damage control in a few and see what happened. One of the Iranian Goddess had the starter leaves beat completely off. You can see the little top coming out. Beat my poor yard to death. It's yellow in most places this morning. Probably took 3 years off the roofs life, black gravel from dimensional shingles every where. Good time's could have been way worse all the way around.

PS ... Quarter size hail down to pea sized.
