That's great man! It's nice to try different experiments every year. I'm with you, I've gained much respect for ancestors and how they lived with this gardening journey.
I've had my hands full with my first outdoor hemp harvest the past few weeks. It has been laborious but satisfying and I've learned a lot. I still have several more plants to cut down and process, some of which I'm going to save until after first frost to see how that affects flower potency. Between harvesting, drying, trimming, and curing it's been some work but I believe I'll have some nice organic medicine to peddle soon. Pro tip: Composted chicken poop makes for great cannabis fertilizer! Some plants reached 8 feet high before leaning over from the weight of dense flowers. I'll get some pictures up soon.
