It may still be a bit chilly, but spring will soon be here. For indoor gardens the change in seasons isn’t all that dramatic. Spring, summer, fall and winter are just different settings on the lighting and temperature controls. For outdoor gardens, however, there is a pre-spring moment that is very special, when the ground has been cleared and the only seeds in the garden are ones of hope and anticipation. Outdoor gardens are a cheap and natural way to grow smoke. However, they can also attract drama like a magnet if discovered by some idiot, so even legal weed should be grown with discretion.

It is a very simple spice to grow (to be correct, it’s a spice – not an her – since the flower clusters are the part of the plant that is harvested). In my opinion, it is easier to grow a nice crop of marijuana than a nice crop of tomatoes or peppers. If you’ve had a successful vegetable or flower garden, you already have most of the needed skills.
