There's loads of Glueberry, but Im smoking some Cinderella Jack right now. I left it alone cos I didn't get much, but WOW it's strong gear!

Mate, they're great, and the new model looks even better!

It's been a while since my last update, so here's the latest....

As always, a group shot to start off under the blaze of the 4 Skyline 400 LEDs, clockwise from top left, Night Queen, Glueberry OG2, Glueberry OG1 and the frazzled looking Pineapple Express.....
day 70 group.JPG

Pineapple Express is supposed to be a 65 day finisher, but that group shot was taken yesterday on day 70, and she's still going strong.
My previous Pineapple went to day 81, only giving me about 2.8 ounces..... this one looks a bit more generous......
day 70 PE 1.JPG

Those leaves might look a bit fucked but I'm photosynthesising the shit out of them!
This is her main cola on day 67...
day 67 PE 1.JPG can see she's close, but the Top Shooter is clearly making her push out more bud, and it all looks reasonably frosty!

Here's another cola shot...
day 70 PE 2.JPG

Night Queen is close to finish as well, but again, the Top Shooter is making her fat buds swell even more!
She is just loaded with chunky colas......
day 70 NQ 1.JPG

Here's a cola on day 67, looking nice and sticky....
day 67 NQ 1.JPG

......and another on day 70. That extra nug on the very top is what the Top Shooter does.... it makes loads of new flowers pop out of the colas, as you can see around the tip, where you see those curly new pistils emerging......
day 70 NQ 2.JPG

Ignore the leaves, the Top Shooter really takes it out of the plants. I use Bud Candy as well, so the plant can get all the sugars it needs, even if the leaves are fucked.
My previous Night Queens have gone to between 73 and 90 days, so I will just have to gauge this one.... I don't think she's got more than a couple of weeks left in her.

The Glueberries are very happy.

GB2 is the smaller, but more advanced, and again, I think she's got about 2 more weeks left to go.
This is a shot from above on day 67....
day 67 GB2 1.JPG

....and again on day 70. with GB1 to the left (more about her in a bit).....
day 70 GB2 1.JPG

Here's a cola on day 67.....
day 67 GB2 2.JPG

.... and another on day 70.....
day 70 GB2 2.JPG

The GB1 is full of bud, such a dense plant, it's a shame she didn't have more room to spread out a bit.
Here she is from above on day 67.....
day 67 GB1 1.JPG

.... and from the side on day 70.....
day 70 GB1 1.JPG

Her colas are also looking pretty sparkly.....
day 67 GB1 2.JPG

... but still a bit on the skinny side. They will fatten up for sure!
day 70 GB1 2.JPG

I think she could go at least another 3-4 weeks, but I will have to chop her down regardless before the impending house inspection on the 23rd May..... 20 days time, and I need time to get the tent down and make it look and smell legit.
Fucking Landlords and their poxy Agents, eh?

Phew that was a long update! That's probably the last you'll see of the Pineapple before I chop her.
All the best!

Nah, I've decided to keep the GB1 going.... the others will come down in time, and on the night before, I'm gonna take the tent down and stash GB1 away under black bags for the day.... hopefully she should be OK...... A bit of stress will do her good!

Time for an update, I've been so busy with all sorts of shit, and there's all this bud to harvest.
I've given the Pineapple Express a good flush and she's down..... I cropped her on day 81.

She was in a bad way, but she made it to the end. Under all those brown leaves, there was plenty of nice looking bud....
day 78 PE 3.JPG

This is how she looked once I pulled out all the dry leaves.....
day 81 PE 1.JPG

I was surprised how many thick colas she had....
day 81 PE 2.JPG

The scissor hash was lovely, so I'm looking forward to smoking the final product. The long stems were hanging in a cardboard box, and the rest was brown paper bagged and hung from a sock dryer.

With the impending house inspection, I had to start flushing the Glueberry 2 and the Night Queen.11

The Night Queen was just immense for an Auto Indica....
day 85 NQ 1.JPG

....from above you can see how much girth she has..... roughly 70cm by 85cm.....
day 85 NQ 2.JPG

She was just bursting with big knobbly colas, the Top Shooter really squeezed as much out of her as possible....
day 85 NQ 3.JPG

day 85 NQ 4.JPG

I started chopping her on day 85 and it took 3 nights, so on day 88, I got on with the Glueberry 2. Her buds were heavy.... stems bending out with the weight. Leaves were browning off, trichs were milky with some ambers, so she was ready as far as I'm concerned. Here's a close up on day 85...
day 85 GB2.JPG

She was looking blooming lovely.....
day 87 GB2 1.JPG

From above, you can see just how much bud she produced....
day 87 GB2 2.JPG

Her colas were thick and sticky...
day 87 GB2 3.JPG

day 87 GB2 4.JPG

day 87 GB2 5.JPG

I had to do her quickly as the damn inspection was imminent. I spent Saturday and Sunday nights harvesting her, then got on with all the shit needed to make this place sparkle for the Letting agency.

Washed the millions of windows, trimmed the hedges, jet sprayed the huntsman webs off the house, cleaned the kitchen, toilets, floors etc and of course, defumigated the grow/smoking room. That was hard fucking work, I was up till 4am the night before the inspection and I still had a plant growing.... the enormous Glueberry 1....
day 91 GB1 1.JPG

At 7am on the day of the inspection (Wednesday), I got to work stashing my grow.

First, I wound some string round her. She loves a bit of bondage.....
day 91 GB1 3.JPG

Then it got really kinky.....
day 91 GB1 4.JPG

Our grow room is up in the roof and has a sloping ceiling, and 2 long, thin, short height storage rooms on either side. Perfect for hiding the gear. In went GB1, followed by 3 boxes of hanging stems and another box stuffed with brown paper bags. Then I took down the tent, and boxed it and all the fans, and into the storage room they all went.

I soaked some cardboard with some orange spray, and poured it on the carpet at the bottom edge of the door, and sprayed it everywhere.
day 91 GB1 6.JPG

I went through 2 bottles.... even though she was wrapped up, she was stinking.

I had the Wife cook up some 'toorka', the base that all Indian food is made from...... onions, garlic, ginger, all the spices, and filled the house with the pungent aroma of masala. I highly recommend this as a way of disguising the smell. Conventional air freshener is too obvious and doesn't work very well - I find the vanilla and berry type scents increase the smell, citrus scents are better but smell like a toilet, and incense sticks are out of the question - only for hippies and students.... cooking food is normal behaviour, and the smell gets everywhere.

11.00 inspection time.... and the little old lady was very impressed with how the place looked.... it turned out she loves Indian food! She even wanted the recipe! Mrs Tee had been piling in the spices, and the ginger was making our eyes water!

By midday, she'd fucked off so I immediately removed GB1 from her restraints, removed her ball gag, and set her free.
She was trussed up like that for maybe 4 hours, and was in great shape afterwards....
day 91 GB1 5.JPG

The tent was up later in the afternoon, and all is back to sweet normality. The noise of the fans and the smell of all that bud drying!


Glueberry 1 is still going on strong.... nice sticky buds, but they still have a bit of fattening up to do.
I've not been able to give her my usual Top Shooter cos I'm having trouble getting supplies so far out here in the wilderness, so she was on basic nutes with the usual other additives, Roots XL, Bud XL, Multizyme and Bud Candy, for a week until I managed to get a free bottle of BAC nutrients's F1 Extreme Booster. My supplier reckons this stuff is great gear, and warned me to get some stakes in to support the huge buds that should follow.

I still have no idea what the pH is. I just can't pull my finger out and deal with the defective probe on my Bluelab Guardian. All it takes is a quick test and an email.... it's been weeks now, and I still haven't done it!

So with another grow almost over, my mind turns to the next grow. I have to be moving out at the end of August, so I have about 100 days..... just enough!

Look what arrived in the post this morning, thanks to my main man for sending them!
First a generous gift from Dutch Passion Tony.... & Night Queens in there and a mix of fruity strains, including the iconic Blueberry. Cheers Tony!

... and also 2 fantastic strains from Dinafem Mark....
Thank you Mark!

I'm just waiting on the bloody Coco to arrive and I can get some of these going.
What I might do is fill up some small pots with Coco - I have about 4 litres - and plant them this weekend, The new Coco should arrive before the end of next week, so I can transplant them into the 20L airpots once they are 1-2 weeks old.

Well if you made it this far, thanks for checking in!

OK so it's day 100 in the tent, and only the Glueberry 1 left.
day 99 GB1 2.JPG

.... well I lie, you can see my new 4 babies there on the side, and also the ground level circulation fan (on rotate) that (I think) pumps more air into the roots and contributes to keeping the temp of the rootzone down.

A closer look at the new ones....
Grow 014 day 1.JPG

Glueberry OG (which I had to dig down to find the seedling), Night Queen, White Widow XXL and Blue Amnesia XXL.

I am doing these in paper cups as I don't have enough Coco to put them in the usual airpots..... been waiting 2 weeks now for the delivery......

Anyway back to Glueberry 1, day 99.....
day 99 GB1 1.JPG

full of nice long colas, as seen from above.....
day 99 GB1 3.JPG

Now for some porn.....
day 99 GB1 4.JPG

day 99 GB1 5.JPG

and a bit closer....
day 99 GB1 6.JPG

nice and juicy....
day 99 GB1 7.JPG

I've had her on flush since Sunday so tonight I will start taking her down.
She's gonna be another weighty Girl, maybe not as big as the last one I did that gave me 14.76 ounces (418g) but certainly over the 10 ounce mark.

The other plants have been dried and jarred with Boveda 62's. I am very happy with the results so far.....

Pineapple Express 6.92 ounces (196.18g)

Night Queen 9.76 ounces (276.69g)

Glueberry OG 2 8.86 ounces (251.18g)

that's already 25 ounces (724g), so I'm well on course to get that key. From 4 Autos!!!!! :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

Annoyingly (!) I've now run out of Mason Jars. :roll: I can get some big ones that take about 3 ounces each, so I reckon 4 of those, plus a stack of Bovedas...... luckily I can get these locally.

What with the remaining good few ounces of Glueberry left from my last grow, I have tons of bud now! I wonder if it's even worth continuing with the new grow.....

nah! It's ALWAYS worth continuing with a new grow! :grin: :grin: :grin:
