So, right in the little town I live in, which is basically 3 bars, a gas station, post office and police station, I have been observing 6 absolutely stunning pot plants mature for the last few months. They are in plain sight, growing along the side of a garage. They are about 7 feet tall, and now have top colas 3-4 feet long and thicker than my thigh, and I am pretty thick. At any rate, I noticed these beauties about the end of August or so. 

 

Now we have had at least 3 good frosts, but they appear to be very frost resistant. However none are that resistant to mold and it has been raining. I drive by there every other day or so on my way into town, and I keep expecting them to be gone as it is WAY late in the year for outdoor plants here. Someone obviously knew what they were doing as they are pruned to a state of perfection rarely seen. However, I am very concerned that something might have happened to whoever was growing them. They flat our should have been taken in 2-3 weeks ago at least. 

 

Now the buds are rusty colored and hanging down on the sides, but despite the weather they look to be in great shape. With COVID and all I am thinking something must have happened, or else they are intentionally letting about 8-10 pounds of beautiful looking buds go to waste. The weather lately has not been good for huge dense buds for sure. 

 

I have seriously considered sending them a letter (or something) offering my help if they need it. The house is still occupied, and I know that the guy that used to sit out on the porch all the time was about 55-60, and I am honestly concerned they are letting this bounty go to heck. Not seen anyone outside in a LONG time. They are very lucky I am an honest sort, because the way it is all set up it would be a very easy score for any of the various meth heads that run around here. Very surprised nobody has yanked them yet. 

 

I know deep down in my soul I should mind my own fucking business lol but man it is giving me genuine stress to watch these amazing plants turn into compost. Whaddaya think, should I mind my own business or send them a letter? lol I already know I should mind my own business, but man it is really bothering me. This is one HELL of a thick harvest that they are letting go to mold. Just needed to tell somebody I guess lol, and Mycotopia has never let me down. Any suggestions are welcome, I am seriously considering the letter thing, maybe with a new email to contact or something. At least it would motivate them to get the fuckers in if nothing else. Figured some of ya'll might get a kick out if it all anyhow.

If it is legal to grow in your state, I might consider actually knocking on the door to inquire about the owners wellbeing, if you are so inclined, and offer help in person.

Well at least now I know someone is taking care of them. Drove by this morning and they had put out a bunch of white PVC pipes to tie the buds up that were hanging. Been raining like holy hell here, so I guess I will just watch them begin the inevitable decline into compost :) Some strains can be incredibly resistant to frost and rain both I guess. An old friend of mine used to let his go until Thanksgiving and I have seen them covered in snow and still getting bigger all the time. THAT is a rare thing though. From my own experience one good frost and they are screwed. Beautiful to see anyhow!

I advocate for caution. After all, no good deed goes unpunished.

Just sayin'.........

 

I am wondering about a similar situation.

Over the past several years A. Friend has been growing medical cannabis in CO. It's harvest time but my friend was murdered a few weeks back - and I wonder who is taking care of his dogs (and his crop). I can't bring myself to go and check for fear of having some sort of emotional breakdown.

Rest in peace Dan. You'll be sorely missed.

Damn myc, so sorry for your loss man. That is a rough one. Yeah that was my predominant thought as well, imagining my own reaction if some concerned citizen were to knock on my door with such a thing lol. Not only that but someone could rip them and you know who would be the main suspect. I tossed it out here mainly for shits and giggles, but I honestly was getting more concerned by the day. Seems like such a waste, but without being able to lay hands on them and open up the buds and look, it is hard to know what is going on with them or not.

Dan was a really good man. He was "one of Us", for sure.

I find it hard to accept that such a peaceful, helpful being has been taken from us.

I'm so torn because I feel like I need to "check-up" on his property but I don't want to risk getting tangled up with trouble. I have no idea where his dogs may be at this time and they are so special - seemingly mean but actually big 'ol babies. I know they're confused and missing their dad right about now. Hoping that a neighbor took them in........but that's a long-shot.

 

I better quit before I start bawling again.

It's not like we were real-life brothers but he sure felt like a Brother to me. I'll always remember vaping wax one afternoon with him. He had a 1/4-pound blob laying around on a big brass candlestick holder. We would just sit around all afternoon taking rips off that blob with a nectar collector, playing guitar, and telling stories.

 

Sorry to hi-jack your thread Coop. I've just been holding this in for awhile now and haven't processed properly.

No worries this thread was without a true point anyhow. More wanted to vent about them not taking their plants in. No worries at all brother. If I was there I would go with you, someone should sure check up on the dogs. Did he get killed over his harvest maybe? Not trying to be nosy man, just curious. The world is a mean ass place right now, and it is gonna get worse before it gets better I think. 

 

EDIT: Just read the articles. So sad indeed.

I don't know the interloper mentioned in the article. He is too young for my crowd -

But I do suspect that the altercation had something to do with cannabis.

 

Dan used to allow persons with licenses (but no place to grow) to grow on his property for a portion of the harvest and some help with his own harvest. A totally fair deal for living rent-free and with all the weed you could care to smoke while waiting for harvest. The man just wasn't stingy and would give you the food off of his plate if you were hungry.

 

Back before legislation was modified, he was able to grow 100 plants. I used to go up during harvest time when I could break away and help trim and bring in the crop.

After legislation was modified he was only able to grow 12 plants (as of this year). With all of the space and land he had set up for 100 plants - it seemed a no-brainer to have some less-fortunate folks come and grow their allotments and live on the property.

I always met good people over at his house. Just good folks....humble, quiet, reserved, kept to themselves........no violence or drinking (and NO HARD DRUGS). I don't know who the fellow was that stabbed him but I've had thoughts of making his bail so we can meet each other close-up and personal-like.

 

Dan used to play 1930's and 40's ragtime jazz on his standup base. He was always pestering me to bring my clarinet so we could go to town and jam publicly. Now I wish I had been more serious about honoring his wish. Someday we'll meet up and jam again - and not a day too soon.

I remember teaching him to grow cannabis some years back when it was legalized in CO and he became quite the expert. He and I ate mushrooms together on several occasions.

Sorry to hear that brother, this life she can be a real cunt sometimes. A loss of a soul can break the ground we walk on.

 

Cheers here's one for Dan
