In the 3rd picture, what is the black booth looking thing with what looks like a zipper?
Also do you restore or mostly build?
I mostly restore anything old. Even new shit(they don't build things like they used to)
Good eye. That is my hydro-tent where I grow my "veggies" ;) And I like building from new instead of restoring even though my wife brings me home plenty of those projects as well.

I’m with you. Even though I’m a superintendent. I did not take the salary route.....and now they have raised the dollar amount on retirement for each credit and retroactive as well
How the hell did you manage that, and why? are you in a smaller district? You getting hourly for evening events and travel?
You cant be in the illinois system i would guess.

My lady is a superintendent and hourly was never in the same universe in any of her positions from teacher to admin.

Her career choice worked out aces for me. Met her as a freshman in college, kept her tended to and whatnot through 12 years of school, and now reaping the rewards.

Been doing what I do for going on year 25, love it, but it sure is liberating knowing I can walk away at any second and not have to worry about it.

My job location is mainly in Chicago. I have worked in Las Vegas, Cincinnati, and Milwaukee. I am a Project Superintendent in my company which is in the concrete construction business in which we do full frame high rise construction. Not sure why you would think I was in the education system.

I think i might have had it easier @Leomaz , i sat in a pick up truck all day doing time cards , grabbing paperwork on deliveries and eating tacos ( authentic ) tacos everyday . Boring as hell but easy .

Because usually Superintendent has a descriptor with it (project, engineer, building, police) if it is not just simply an educational Superintendent.

Well I apologize, I was replying to @Fatman LOU and we are both union members so I knew I didn’t have to explain it to him. They call me Superintendent on the job. My bad

Here is the Jack about a month before harvest.

And the Quantum Kush just now beginning to flower. Outside plants are always larger but not the quality of indoor.

Impressive. I was surprised by your earlier post stating you had harvested the Jack, did not realize you were growing those plants indoors.

I am only now beginning to see the first flowering/buds in my outdoor jungle of Royal Maui Bubba, Amherst Sour Diesel, and Mordor. I hope to be harvesting fat buds in about 5-7 weeks. I've never grown before so I need to jump on youtube to figure out my next steps.

Any advice for a first-timer?

Yeah it was arthritis, bone on bone. The surgeon did partials on both knees and said he would wait to see if i needed total knee replacement when he goes in there. I went in Monday morning and was released on Wednesday. I was walking with a walker on Tuesday and without a walker 3 days later. The pain was excruciating for about 3 weeks. Good thing for the oxycodone,extra strength pain relief pills and aspirin. I just finished up with my visits to the physical therapist.
Knees feel real good now, way better now than years before surgery. What sucks is my temporary handicap sticker expires at the end of the month.
Junkie 😅😂🤣

Retired blue collar who became white collar as the years rolled by. Now I do whatever the hell I want to do, go where I want when I want.
Now I spend my days working for cash when I feel like it and when I don't I have my woodworking shop to spend my time in. 1300 sq feet including my 60 inch big screen and cool 1990's pioneer receiver and speakers so the entire neighborhood can enjoy my music along with me.
Make any new farm tables lately?
