    About Us

    Who are we? Tim is a retired building contractor whose years of back-breaking labor left him with chronic pain that could only be managed with medical marijuana. He made the decision several years ago to quit buying from dispensaries and instead to grow his own. He loved to garden anyway, and thought whats the difference? Turns out there is a bit more work involved if you want awesome weed. He had the great good fortune of having access to a number of old growers with decades of experience in growing great bud, and he quickly took advantage of their willingness to share their knowledge. Through his own trial and error…

    The Fence Project Begins

    Most medical marijuana gardens require a privacy fence. Our old privacy fence has got to go and go soon! The time is fast approaching when the clones will be here and gardening will take all precedence. The dogs get loose two to three times a day now, that old fence looks like crap and we can gain some garden area in the process. Extend out two sides of the fence and we can add another clone to this marijuana-growing season. Well start taking down and burning the old rotten boards, start sealing and staining the new boards and digging holes Lets get to work! The following photo clearly illustrates the…

    Controlling Pests Organically in your Cannabis Garden

    Checking for bug damage. This season has already been horrific for pests in our COG garden. Weve decided the mild winter is the villain in play, leading to many more bugs surviving to lay eggs, hatch into detrimental larvae and adults. We especially have suffered from nasty earwigs and aphids which first decimated our marigolds, moved on to the beans, then the peas, even the hot peppers which was an immense surprise to Anne. Typically the alkaloid capsaicin the nitrogen compound that makes the peppers hot provide enough protection to the plant to prevent insect predation. These were voracious little buggers! Then holes began to appear in our Cannabis and…

    Cannabis Outdoor Growing Adds YouTube Videos

    During the month of June, COG introduced helpful videos on YouTube demonstrating some of our various tricks for maximizing our Cannabis quality and output. Topics weve covered so far include Aeration of the Cannabis roots, Fertilization, Super-cropping, and Trimming the base of the plants. Aeration does exactly what it sounds like it breaks up the hardened soil and lifts the root base while providing better access to water and nutrient to the plants. Organic compost is added at this time to protect from heat and dessication as well as adding a little more food to the plant. The basin around each plant is made larger through each process and as…

    Playing in the Dirt Provides Natural High

    Hey, Im not kidding. Actual legitimate verifiable scientific studies have found soil bacteria that release a compound that triggers our brain to release serotonin a neurotransmitter that makes us feel good. Havent you every wondered why you feel so peaceful and serene when you garden? I did. For years I called gardening my Zen work-out but now I know why. A Dr. Chris Lowry and colleagues at Bristol University in the UK discovered that a particular soil bacterium can make you feel good; specifically they became intrigued by a study that claimed cancer patients treated with a particular bacterium experienced an increase in quality of life. The good doctors speculated…

    Our Cedar Privacy Fence is Built!

    Several weeks have passed and we have finally finished building our cedar privacy fence. All that remains is to secure the Wi-Fi cameras and lights to the outer ten-foot-high perimeter poles. One central security pole remains intact after all of the demolition, and we retained two standard posts from the old fence to attach wire fencing for growing pole beans in our garden. We grow our Cannabis right alongside our vegetables and everything is organic. More photos will be forthcoming in future articles featuring the vegetable garden and the growing Cannabis. As we proceeded around the yard building the new fence, we had to keep in mind our two escape…

    Happy Easter! The fence project continues

    Hopefully everyone is enjoying beautiful weather and the forthcoming spring! A stone retaining wall shores up the back length of the yard and looks beautiful besides! Tim has taken advantage of the beautiful weather to work like a dog on the awesome new fence. He decided against railroad ties along the alley behind the property, and is building a gorgeous ornamental block retaining wall for structural support instead. The ties worked great between his yard and the neighbors, but for this large of slope, the ornamental retaining wall gives great support while being much more pleasing to the eye. Note the string line for keeping his levels and straight edges.…

    An example of the branching of a pruned tip. Here are two beautiful new branches where there used to be only one.
