Taking care of the weeds ...

July 31, 2018

Today, The Old Hemp Farmer is running a little late on the Tennessee Homegrown's 2018 photographic journal of it's Hemp crop being grown on Lee Crabtree's farm in Readyville, Tennessee. We've been taking care of the weeds, feeding the "girls" and trying to do a little preventive care in case we get some pesky critters or bad microbes. Contrary to popular belief Hemp is susceptible to insect infestation and disease. Right now we have a running war with Southern Blight and have been losing a plant, here and there, because of it. We use probiotics to fight bad bacteria but sometimes the bad bacteria wins and you lose a "girl" and it's always sad when you lose a a big, country fine Female Hemp plant. Hard to believe but our harvest starts in in couple weeks, our fourth, golly gosh how time flies when you're farming Hemp.
