Getting the chop today, for sure going to have some f2’s and probably a bunch of crosses with these UK Spunk. Let both Males have a go. IMG_1614.jpeg
This is the bed that the rabbits seemed to like, 3 in the left were all chewed down, all still green. Fence is doing its job.

I love catchin up on your grow @Bullfrog . I hear ya about the bunnies. Those little MF'ers have kept me on my toes. Ever since I sunk chicken wire around big gardens fence they haven't been a problem. I still keep a couple huge brush piles on the property and like to flush em out and make soup every winter. I throw out a bunch of green clippings in the compost pile everyday so I feel like I'm raising them half the time lol. They taste great though! Plants are lookin kick ass by the way!

Thanks for stopping over. The feeling is mutual brother, always love seeing what you're up to and seeing all your gorgeous creations.

That's exactly how I feel about this batch of rabbits, like I've been raising them. Fence has been up for almost a week and it sure is nice going to the garden and seeing no damage. Little by little getting there, still have to get the deer fence up, going up to 8', hope that's high enough. They haven't been interested yet, first year for a garden here so I don't think they have acquire the taste. It won't be long though, squash and corn will be flowering soon, deer will want that stuff, I see tracks so they're around, don't really want them getting a taste, they'll just be more determined.

Bunch of plants need food, and I'll be taking cuts off a few plants very soon too. Staying really busy.

yeah the deer by me would destroy my whole garden over night if they could. It gets real bad in the fall when they can sense the cold coming. They've tried kicking over my fence, jumping over and rub and lean on it daily. I don't blame them one bit but they keep me on my toes. I also feed them all kinds of healthy scraps. I see it as seasoning the meat for fall 😂

Fed everything composted horse manure and bone meal today. Chopped another 4 males, getting them whittled down slowly. Have 2 picked out so far that I want to clone and collect pollen from a Skunk #1 and a UK Cheese x Extreme Cookies. There's a Pure Michigan F5 male and a Spirit x Cake Fighter male that both have my attention also.

The UK Spunk female has seeds forming already, stoked to have a bunch of f2's to look through. If I decide to do an indoor run this winter it may just be a UK Spunk bud run, love smoking that stuff, only have bout an oz left, not looking forward to being out of it.

What is this ?
Homemade autoflower, chopped the males about a week ago. Smells nice like the sister that I've been smoking, she has a cheese pizza odor when I pop the jar. It's a short ugly, cousin It looking thing. Livers x Moneyshot=UK Spunk

I have some photo plants in the area that I think may have gotten seeded also, they are in preflower so there will probably be a few seeds. Can't really see anything on them though so who knows. Time will tell.

This is the whole plant, leafy fucker, needs a defoliation for sure. I remember the other one of these I grew out benefited from a haircut. IMG_1629.jpeg

A lot of the plants in pots are drying a little at least the top half is drying. All that good compost I put on them never really got watered in good, it's only sprinkled rain a few times in the last week. Watered everything really good today. After that was done, I figured something better has to be done, carrying water buckets too far. So, I dug a good-sized hole back in the swamp today, 3' diameter x 3 foot deep. Went back after an hour or two and it was overflowing with water. Have some ideas for it but for now it's a great spot to dip a pail so I can water without hauling it 100+ yards through the swamp. Got the whole day to be on the farm tomorrow so I may play around in this water hole, dig it deeper, wider, line it with stone. I have a hand pump and some pipe too, should be able to figure an easy way to get it out of the hole. Maybe even someday an electric pump and irrigation, in my dreams, haha.

In the 80s & 90s all of my Gorilla Gardens were planted over a couple of miles alongside a brook.
That brook was the lifeline for 98% of my grows. I would water and feed everything from that source and used the waterway as my trail system to move through the gardens without leaving any Footprints.
Wearing Chest waders all day long was Hot as HELL.
But I Embraced the SUCK!

The Reward$ for such grows back then where Huge.

A lot of trace minerals I’m sure were in that flowing water and the gardens always thrived, were very Robust and Healthy.
I never had any problems with insects or funguses, Mother Nature took care of itself.

I like the idea that you have created a shallow Well for your garden, but be careful about it becoming stagnant and Anaerobic.

I'm not sure why, I guess because it's a downhill slope, but you can see the water trickling through the hole. When I'm sitting back there being quiet, I can hear the water trickling under my feet. It's a weird area, wish I could explain it but I don't really understand what's going on yet. I haven't found any algae or bad smelling ground/water anywhere. Weird because it's always wet, should stink bad but it just smells like dirt and plants.

I guess I'm going to find out, if my plants die then I'll know it wasn't a good idea.

Didn’t get a chance to play in the water hole, here it is after I took a dozen 5g pails out of it. It was clear water and over the top of the hole when I started, couldnt really see the hole, wouldn’t want to step in that on accident, man that’d suck. Try and get a before picture next time.

About a month ago my sister started taking about putting a flower bed around her well head. I had a couple boulders to put around it, when I went to place them I noticed the pipe had black marks and it looked like the cap was spun. Investigated closer and noticed a tiny bit of water around the wire conduit, dug down a bit, sure enough the boot was leaking. I think she bumped it with her new riding lawn tractor, won’t admit it though. They fixed the boot last week so I finished the landscaping today. It’s ready for her to plant her flowers.

Maybe you’ll be all set, looks like the water table is close to the surface and it’s a sandy gravel that will allow the water to flow through it.
With you seeing and hearing water moving that should help filter it.
Does it clear up any between drawing water from it?

Yeah, it was clear, could see the bottom before I started dipping my bucket in there. Takes about an hour to clear it up after stirring it up. May be sandy gravel but that stuff is packed like rock, feels more like clay digging it but acts like sand when I get it loosened up. It's like digging the lake bottom, not fun.

I don't doubt you'll be much happier with that water available right there.
It's awesome, but if it's going to cause issues not so good. Didn't have time to get over there today, which sucks, need my garden time to stay sane. I'm really hoping it's going to be good to use. Of course my dumb ass just jumps right in using it, consequences be damned.

Still want to get the drive point and a few sections of pipe in the ground, mostly out of curiosity. It's so weird because the bog is higher in elevation than where the house is, by probably close to twenty feet. Where the house is it's dry as fuck. From the road it's flat about half way back then there's a steep incline of about 20' elevation, then it's a gentle slope to the back property line. This is where the bog is. Just a little ways past our line and the elevation starts going up a lot faster, not sure how high the hill is but it's a good one, guessing close to a 500' drop in elevation from the top. That hill is where all the fire and radio towers are in the area, highest spot around for a few miles.

It wouldn't hurt to PH the water.
I'm interested in the fact that you hear water, I would do some scouting.
Look for signs where the vegetation may be greener and the soil maybe darker along the other elevation further behind you.
If you do, you may find the tributary for the bog and see if it leads back to your property. This would be a potential area to place your Drill rod.
Chances are there is a spring or springs coming from the higher elevation behind you, and your grow sits on a natural depression of bedrock thats filled with Glacial till.
Your house remains dry due to the depression that is capturing the runoff.

I have several springs just behind my garden. Some of them have water bubbling up from the hillside and leave a little sandy gravel looking stream before disappearing back into the ground and another has been excavated and created a pond.

From your photos It appears to be a nice place for your outdoor grow and to relax, I like how you've made wood walks and raised beds.
