I have completed both makeshift greenhouses (that were never designed for high winds - rare for this area), and watched one of them collapse on my entire front grow, which strait up demolished my plants. Two main support poles snapped in a high wind storm, but I was able to save the greenhouse with new poles, and all the plants with "minimal" damage. The greenhouse repair was accomplished in the pouring down rain, and done at a time when that was the last thing I felt like doing - priorities.

My plants seem to be exemplifying the same way that I look and feel - off, sick, worried, and struggling hard... but like a good friend, I have been there for them through their ruff times, making everything better that I possibly could, fighting for them hard in the rain and wind, and creating the most ideal environment and conditions possible for healing and growth. I even talk to them, asking to show/tell me what I need to do for them, and letting them know everything will be ok (I supposed I am talking to both the plants and myself when doing this).

One of the ways I was able to help them was by providing an organic compost tea provided by a local Portland store called The Garden Spout (great store btw with very knowledgeable/friendly growers on staff). This mix is extremely beneficial and can be added to any watering and/or feeding regiment. Since the tea does not actually contain any nutrients, you do not have to worry about nute-burn upon application in combination with other nutrient regiments. This particular mix includes gathered beneficial woods debris, bacteria, and fungi - which creates optimal root function, soil health, aeration, and drainage. It also generally makes your plants healthier even if they were healthy already.

I also go over what had to happen for these greenhouses to be constructed in this fashion, why I had to move all my potted plants even though that meant ripping well established roots out fo the ground that have grown through the fabric pots (first time being moved all season), the crucial importance of using "wiggle-wire" to hold down your greenhouse plastic, and why a special type of plastic designed for growing is the only plastic type that should ever be used for cannabis garden cover.
