If you’re from Canada, there’s 5 generally accepted kinds of all purpose tape.
Oh gawd, you better blaze whatever you’ve got in your stash and buckle up.
This is a conversation that I had in my head (with myself and all her variations ) when I thought about just how (exactly) I was going to explain this photo, in a way that wasn’t mind numbingly boring.
“Yo girl. What’s up?” “You probably gonna need a disclaimer for this train-wreck.”
Nobody get their fucking knickers in a knot if I didn’t list your favourite kind of tape by name. It’s just tape and we all have to talk about something.
(Lol! And, that better not be a fucking quote I’m remembered for...And I’m going to say fuck. A lot.)
If you’re generally good with that, stick around for the show...
What else are you gonna talk about?...the weather?...
That’s why I feel so compelled to explain the difference in tape and how that relates to my cannabis plants.
....because of the fucking weather.
(Everybody significantly lifted if you’re still here?)
Ok. Make a fucking list and get on with it already!
Here we go...
Hahaha! What good is living if you don’t know how to have fun with nothing ??? so I’m going to talk to you about cannabis and fucking tape ...for a few clam shells....and then I’m fixing to leave that on the internet for the entire world to see... forever. Gawd Damn it! Because that’s how much I love you. And we’re gonna have a good time while we all figure this out. Together.
Anybody got a fucking problem with that?
In my neck of the woods, No one really uses Scotch because it’s dainty as fuck and small.
At best, it’s a whimpy-ass adhesive (not you 3M, but most others).
It gets reserved for paper applications like: holding the wrapping paper on a gift together; the kind that doesn’t have to last fully wrapped for more than a few hours. If a piece let’s go, it won’t really matter because Aunt Bertie can’t really see. The kind of, “if it sticks it sticks” application and if it doesn’t, it’s no big deal.
no serious shits will be lost by anyone if it doesn’t.
Another quote. Fuck.
On to Painters
You know, I’ve never met a professional painter who wasn’t a chronic alcoholic. If they’ve been in the trade for a decade or more, they can all pound back a 40 every night. Then, paint with a precision hand, that’s guided by a hawk’s eye. The next morning! That’s fucked up.
I continued to think.
Must be a union requirement. Lolz! Maybe something in the Wiser reacts with the paint fumes and lends itself to this ability.
Shit. I should explore that thought about the alcohol.
Hey, I wonder if the alcohol that I left my nailhead in, has managed to bore its way through the concentrate blockage that was making, taking a hit more challenging than it really should.
I “get” that we come to earth to suffer. The goal is to experience feelings but nobody needs to feel raw emotion due to the functionality of a water pipe.
Bec, contrast is contrast.
As soon as you identify what you don’t like, you can do something different and ultimately choose another action. That’s how the game of life works.
No mistake about it. Life is a game.
(Welcome to the way my mind works. You still with me?)
Painters tape is a step up. Marginally.
You would use this tape when you aren’t sure if you want to make a permanent commitment to whatever it is that you want to hold together...kinda of like the commitment Steemit’s white paper made to all of us in the clause that matter of factly said: “one day the experiment could be over.” (I made it to page 14. 3 years ago. Lol!)
That’s painters tape for you. You can ripe it right off and you’d never know that it was ever used or even holding space to protect something new.
You done explaining tape Little Miss? Yeah. I think so.
So I had to pick the correct tape to brace and secure my plants.
The tape’s adhesive had to hold through cold temperatures, wet conditions and high wind.
I used stakes to support (early on) while the plants’ stocks and branches got stronger.
Then, I removed most of the stakes and used the plants’ own branches as structural support...because I’m Canadian (and fucking-well can) by hockey tape.
It won’t lose its support in the sun and it will still let the plants sway in the wind.
If this fucking works I’m naming it the 99 Pot trick because not only is it hockey tape, it’s going to enable the production of a lot of future oilers. ;)
We have about 6 weeks left to grow before harvest. The plants have been in my care and growing since the end of January. (Made it this far. Yay!!!!)
Best of luck with your harvests and here’s to finishing strong!
