My Year in pictures - July
July is a busy and exciting month.
By mid month there should be an abundance of buds being secured. 

Any cocked buds can be corrected with a little perseverence

Liquid feeding continues every five to seven days until the calyx splits and all feeding stops and a bud bag is placed over the expanding bud. 

By the end of July bud bags will be everywhere and finally the roof is put on the shelter.

Some thumbnail pictures of July:
