I'm finally getting around to this...so Hello GK! I would like to first off thank each and every one of you for your efforts, your advice, your dreams and your grows. I've been following some very interesting grows, keeping updated on cannabis culture, tuning into the political endeavors and legislation, and watching the intricate dance of legalization, all here at this wonderful site. I feel at home here, thank you. I have been interested in growing since I first started smoking all those hazy years ago. Having been raised in Iowa, I've seen first hand the benefits of hemp production, for the soil, the micro-environment, and mother earth. But my own personal efforts in growing are two-fold. While there are great and wonderful seed companies and growers out there working on the all-illusive perfect high, I am attempting to work out an easily identifiable hemp plant for use in the agricultural field. Unfortunately, this sojourn is just as illegal. I too grow for personal use though, mostly outdoors, and a one or two at all times in the "other" grow room. Of all my personal grows, none have been from "known" genetics. Whether they have been from bag-seed, or clones from other local growers, they're parentage and genetics are always questionable. Yet I have a blast every time. To see the fruit of our labors is only the beginning of my enjoyment, as the time I spend with my grows encourages me to grow along with them. At the moment, I have 24 confirmed females, 20 growing gorilla-style in the care of our mother nature, the remainder of which are (for better-or-worse) under my artificial conditions. These are my girls for personal use and for gifting to others....Home-Grown is for Sharing! I give what I can to help limit the unfortunate black market sale of marijuana (I do this with cucumbers as well!). By the way...The Apprentice...kudos on your recent "Grow it Forward" campaign! I also maintain a greenhouse for my hemp production and experimentation containing roughly 240 plants spanning six generations including this year's. Of course it would be unwise for me mix work and pleasure, or so my lawyer informs me. It seems he feels confident enough that if I am discovered with my growing facilities, that the repercussions will be limited....as long as it is ONLY hemp. I will leave legalities up to others as growing is my forte. Enough with my rambling! Let's Grow!
