Hello guys & gals: i need tips & advice on growing outdoors in the western coastal area of the Pacific NW. First time growing outdoors. Any tips on strains that do well in this wet & gloomy climate? Do NW/BC growers veg their seedings indoors awile before transplanting outside? Approx. date to plant outside & harvest? Grow in the ground or in camoflauged buckets? Bugs & mold? I know there's WORLD CLASS outdoor weed grown on both sides of the border..if they can grow outdoor in southern coastal BC then i'm sure it's being done in the western NW states, too. I just imagine it's kinda hard to grow, with possible mold issues & a super late harvest? Please help! I read the sticky about which strains grow well in which regions..and the one post was from BC..with limited details. So come'on you Oregon & Washington & BC outdoor growers, help a newbie out. I only plan on a dozen plants tops..so not a commercial grow just personal. Deer problems? Other critters? Tricks or the trade? Unfortunately, i don't live in a climate like florida where you can throw a handful of seeds in the backyard in the winter & have them grow into monsters. Here it's chilly, damp, & limited sunshine. Kinda near saltwater, too. The summers are nice, tho..and i KNOW it can (and will) be done..lol. I figure if you can grow outdoor in Alaska, you can do it in the PNW. Thanks in advance..i'm not trying to get ya'll to give up your "trade secrets" (actually yes i am..lol.) but just steer me in the right direction with some basics. Thanks for reading, S.J.
