Article about our “Easy Outdoor Grower’s Guide” in TAC

Pick up a copy of The American Cultivator newsletter next month or login to their site and you’ll see a front-page article introducing our book — Easy Outdoor Grower’s GuideMedical Marijuana Growing for the Beginner. We are so excited! We wrote this book for the newbie. Thinking about the states opening up to legal medical marijuana, and we realized there were tons of books and guides available that are encyclopedic in knowledge and information, but no simple little instruction manuals on how to begin. So we wrote a book that tells you how. It’s a friendly little heavy duty guide, only 6×9″ in a spiral format with laminated covers and heavy 70# paper so it will last through many seasons and you can take it with you into the garden. The spiral lets you open to a page and follow instructions on that page. It’s small enough to carry around, and its finished just in time for the 2013 season.

We also offer tips and pointers, and support. Tim is happy to answer “in the garden” questions, and Anne is happy to tackle any general botanical or biological questions (pertaining to marijuana, of course :). We are having fun in the kitchen too, experimenting with delectable edibles recipes and will share a recipe a month on our website.. Feel free to pop in and share one of yours as well!

Happy Growing from Cannabis Outdoor Growing!

Season 2013

Scheduling for a medical marijuana growing season goes something like this:

Weather gets warmer

Major garden prep takes place in March–raking and clearing the plot, any repairs or updates to the area–thus the fence project. The old fence will be torn down and burned or recycled as appropriate, the new boards will be sealed and pre-stained, the new posts sunk and the stringers nailed up. Then screw on the boards and voila’ fence done, head to the garden…

Check the soil pH throughout and in specific spots around the garden, depending upon surrounding trees and vegetation–(e.g., pine increases the acidity of soil in its vicinity). Treat the soil to increase or decrease soil pH as needed.

One of these days go get some clones! Visit one of our favorite dispensaries (or make our own clones. We’re adding a section to next year’s book edition to show how to clone…)

We’ll keep you updated on our progress.
