    Not with blooming cannabis. During veg growth, yes. During flower it's important to keep humidity low to prevent mold and to simulate fall. 

    Check your pm. :)

    It’s still dark out.

    Beautiful sitting out in my 64 square foot greenhouse. 74 with a humidity of 38%. This weather has been easy on the electric bill. 

    57 outside with clearing sky. 

    Depending on what you’re growing and/or what stage your plant is in, might want to up your humidity to around 60%. Transpiration ftw. ;)


    It’s dark out.

    24 hrs. later I have received 5 drops instead of 5 inches.

    This is not 15 day low resolution wish-casting from the GFS. This is 24 hr. high resolution from the NAM 3k. 

    The GFS and ECMWF regularly average 8 - 15 degrees inflated with heat at 24 hrs...  Now the NAM 3k misses by 5 inches with 24 hr. rainfall.

    I believe Gordon Barnes could have done better with his primitive tools in 1975!!!

    Do we continue to delude ourselves with 21st century high tech??


    Heavy Rain in your P&C is the kiss of death. Welcome to the club.

    *SNIP* and ALWAYS a great concession stand.  :) 

    Think this is year 8+ as ‘Grill Master/Chairperson/Whatever I’m Currently Called’ and for the first time, had a burger questioned because it was supposedly underdone. If you want a hockey puck, I can cook a hockey puck…

    Pouring here in Ashburn. Not going to have to water the garden for another week.  

    Oh, but, yes you will. We know the drill around here.

    Now I've got three black swallowtails hatched and one more to go.  It's just too cold to release them today and with the big, cold rain coming I am thinking about holding them for a few days.  Bad timing for them

    Longest I’ve held so far is four days, with the first ‘fly of the year. To hold ‘em longer, you can do the sugar water with a cotton ball in a bottle cap, or even Gatorade if you want them to grow up big and athletic. Personally never done either, they know when to go. Released #25 Sun. :)

    Very nice!  I have 5 black swallowtail chrysalises and am keeping them in a cool part of the house hoping they'll wait a few more weeks.

    Cool! About a third of mine chrys facing NNE. Haven’t quite figured out their pattern yet. Except that one will always saddle in the most inopportune place…

    Released #15 a moment ago. :)

    Please find each other and share a pic as ever impersonal as you’d like if you’re not comfortable sharing faces. Crump too! 

    Ya know, we should prob catch a wx group game together as a kinda meet up. We aren’t getting any younger. Especially Andy. It’s hella fun.


    (And the self serve beer thingy is worth the price of admission. Although I’m afraid to check my credit card statement now.)

  9. And surely you’ve learned just a little bit more about wx compared to less than a year ago?

    You should probably step away from your keyboard and post less. Much less. Maybe go outside and enjoy the actual weather?

  10. Heh, put my feeders out during that warm stretch too @mattie g. Only to pull them back in when we dropped in the 20s. No sightings yet, but back out they go. And Amazon was kind enough to deliver a Peterson Hummingbird Field Guide today. :)

    I dunno. I get told plenty by a couple friends that post here that anything pre 1975 is the same as 1675. 

    Easy there fella. That’s like saying our places of residence share the same climo…
