Fyi...New Mexico is now pretty much wide open. 12 plants per household, no permit needed. Recreational currently legal and sales begin in the spring. Interstate 40, 25, and 10 go through the state. Smart move I'd say.
You can keep it fought back by mixing 1tbs of vinegar in a quart of water and spraying leaves top and bottom. Personally I use apple cider vinegar but white will work I also use a drop or two of dish soap. Wash your plants when you harvest.
Robert, I agree with your assessment of the situation and thank you for your willingness to share your research results. This may be a business decision that works for nirvana...or not. This should cut their volume a bunch which may be exactly what they want. I figure we'll know in a year or so if it works out.
Nice fall garden! Yeah I agree, I will be 75 a month from today and I wish all this could have happened 50 years ago, lol! But I'm glad it's happening for the next generation. Guerilla growing...a dying culture. Most people will never know what we have been through growing something that should have never been illegal in the first place. Idk about you Chubbs but I feel like all that work and keeping things top secret helped me in life. It certainly was a huge responsibility and I never got in trouble with the law.
I've wondered about that and I suspect you're right. A single plant can make thousands of seeds but just like milk, the packaging, labor, and transportation are the norm. Also, if you look at fem seeds, bred and produced in the USA, they are about 10 bucks each even if you buy 10 seeds. Just saying it's not that bad and you get a company with known genetics that stands behind the product.
