441Ē on day 68 or 1808 lbs. Since I last measured 5 days ago she has gained 85 lbs or 17 lbs a day. The leaves around the stump are showing some age but the rest of the plant, which is on new soil in the extended part of the patch, is looking good. I should have tissue test results on Monday. I wasnít sure how it would work with a plant covering 2 very different soils, the new soil has great texture but the test results were nothing you would want with N and K off the charts. The salt levels were also high which isnít surprising because it is left over from pot growers and was aged for 3-5 years in a giant pile. I had to water the hell out of it to flush the salts and I really need to be careful about fertilizing because the EC levels are probably high. If anyone knows of a good EC meter, email me please.
