This will sound crazy, my brother thinks I’m full of shite, but I swear I get more ticks when I wear clothes. :crazy_face:

No seriously, I wear shorts and T-shirt, I feel the ticks on the hair on my legs and arms, and wipe’m off. If I go out covered, I find’m in the shower, dug in. For some reason they love my belly button. :flushed: :rofl: :rofl:

The best defense I have for ticks… chickens. I free range my chickens, now I just have to watch my step. :astonished: :flushed: :innocent: :four_leaf_clover: :four_leaf_clover:

Yep same here, was a bit cool for shorts. We tried the chickens twice, to many other things like chicken, Eagles, hawks, Owls, yotes, and feral cats, never had chickens last more than 3 weeks once we let them roam.

@Bentstick saw above months back that you were looking for a good humidifier for a 3x3. This was an awesome purchase. Not ultrasonic. It is a wicking humidifier. Silent with High/Low and 6 humidity settings so it will cycle on/off as needed.


in the background. Doesn’t leave the white powder all over your fans and tent

Ok here we go weekend updates will start today, so ended up 21 plants 2 shy from my goal but hey WTH There will be my plants growing all over Northern Michigan.I will give total run down of whats growing here at The Shack on the Black next few weeks, hands are full making sure all the plants are happy, healthy, and wise!

Here is what I call the juvey tent they were transplanted last Wed 5-15-24 growing like well Weeds, gave the coco pots first feed of AN this morning at 500 ppm, which I did not ph down, but 7.7 water in and when mixed ended at 6.4. The 2 in SF fab bags are in FFHF so they just getting water, the small one gal pots are getting a lil shot of AN just to keep the healthy till outdoors within a week.

The 2x4 is the nursery tent for the second drop of seeds, figuring up coming Wed will be transplant day roots have hit bottom and growing out the nursery bags.

And a shot of the grow bags that will Be the forever homes of my grow outdoors, and the Irisis are coming to bloom.

Need to be @noddykitty1 , why pay someone to do when I can, learned alot of things just by digging in doing it, and being in the trades learned alot just by watching and asking, somethings I dont know untill I see it done, never been one to shy away from failure hehehe. Failed at alot before I learned :+1:
