I'm growing in Foley. I planted several varieties last March that I ordered online. Got my first flower last week on an unknown variety. Nice to know there's a fellow enthusiast in the area, I'll be separating my pups in the next few months, maybe we can do some trading. Here's a link for a video walkthrough of my project
