With frost around the corner, the time is right to cut, dry and cure homegrown buds.
Along with planting bulbs and clearing out dying annuals, some Ontario gardeners now have a new fall tradition: harvesting their cannabis plants.
“Now is the most exciting time of growing at home,” said Katy Perry, who owns a hydroponic supply store in Toronto.
“Your plant is finally ready to be chopped down, dried, cured and consumed.”
Last week, Canada marked one year since legalization, making this the first time that Ontarians have been able to legally cultivate cannabis over the summer growing season.
Toronto’s Richard Freeman had never grown cannabis before when he decided to take the plunge mid-summer in his backyard.
An experienced gardener, he placed two cannabis plants in his herb garden and focused on giving them the basics: decent soil, water, and light.
“Despite the late start, the plants did quite well, growing very nice and bushy,” he told CBC Toronto by email, adding that he plans to harvest right before the year’s first frost.
