Planning an outdoor grow in 2022

was wanting to do a smal 10x10 raised bed for four(4) tomatoes outside. im planning to construct a small outdoor structure using 4 4x4s and garden trellis around that. 4 tomato plants in each corner. in the center, the crown jewel! one outdoor marijuana plant. I plan to use Foxfarm Lucky Dog K9 Kube soil in a ten or twenty gallon fabric pot. Should i do an autoflower or photo? if photo, then what is a good month to start to get a good 2 months of veg outdoors? whats a good resilient strain? im thinking Northern Lights is a good idea.

Just kicking around ideas at the moment so id love to hear input. i think the tomatoes will act as a good buffer for pests and nosy neighbors

    • Sounds like a good plan ! There's a lot of good new strains... ones I have grown that would be good are Platinum Zikittlez, Forbidden Fruit, Runtz, and Raspberry Cough. These are all early maturing and heavy yielders. It doesn't seem fair to just name a few, there's SOO many !! I would prune heavily too. Personally, I wouldn't let an auto get near your project ! He,he.he. I would go in first with the maters, and 2-3 weeks after that, put the crown jewel in. For 2 months of veg start the CJ in early May and transplant to your raised bed in June. Look for a harvest in mid Sept. GL

      • thanks for responding! this is still in the planning stages.. so yeah! im gonna get my tomatoes established, at least one month old. a few feet tall and then one day the photo will pop up!. I suppose i will get it started indoors and bring it out within 2-4 weeks.. the strain is almost not important but it will be in a hot climate for sure. this is really for learning purposes and the love of the grow

        • Cedar or cypress ( non-treated ) , naturally resistant to bugs and other creatures , rot resistant , can last touching soil for years .

        • I put an extra auto outside this summer.  it did really well considering how little I messed with it once it was outside.  Amazing earthy flavor and good buzz compared to same strain that finished inside the tent that had a fruity taste and equal good buzz.  Looking forward to 2022!!!

          • Just make sure you pick one that is mold resistant. Where you live you can go photo or auto just keep in mind they can really tall outside.

            • CPW, the one I put outside was a LST plant and it stayed low and bushy.  I kind of want to see one go with nature's full potential next summer!  Head high or taller would be Sweet!!!  The right hiding spot should help with that mission!

                • Depends on where you live. I live in southern Michigan so I start my seeds late February/early March then in the ground Mothers day weekend after the last threat of frost is gone. This year I got a late start and plants didn't go in till mid/late June and they still did decent. It all depends on your climate.
