Gardening has easily been my preferred activity for approximately 15 years.
It started as an activity that I did with my mother on the weekends when I was home from school.
Before long I started designing my own garden along the edge of our dwelling with budget plants from the local supercenter. I was able to grow zucchinis and pumpkins to full maturity after a couple of trials and errors. The flowers were entirely wonderful—from perennials to lilacs and daisies, and even a few orchids in the fronds of a nearby palm tree. It was thrilling tending to the plants every other afternoon and watching them grow over the course of numerous years. I still haven’t given up gardening even as I’ve grown much older. Now I have set my sights on growing cannabis in my backyard area. I am a regular marijuana smoker but the expensive cost of the flower buds is intimidating to people like me who are more or less on fixed incomes. If I managed to grow numerous marijuana plants to full maturity, I would be able to harvest them and then dry and cure them in storage until they’re prepared to trim and store in jars for later use. I decided to buy a few books on growing, plus a good buddy of mine provided me with a few seeds to start with. He provided me multiple sativa strains, one hybrid, and multiple indica strains. I’m honestly happy to get my hands dirty and start growing marijuana in my backyard. I can finally use enough of the plant each day where I feel consistent stress relief from one minute to the next.
