OK… I know I’m not ready to harvest my first crop yet (Northern Lights Auto). But I suspect I’m close. All the leaves on the plant are a super healthy dark green. No signs of yellowing yet. This first pic is of the tip of my top cola:
Trichomes are visible with the naked eye. Closer inspection with my camera shows them to be mix of clear, milky and amber. Pistols are still just over 50% white. So tempted to snip this and start drying, but I won’t because the rest of this cola looks more like this:
Most of the pistols are still white, and I’m having a hard time telling the color of the trichomes (yes, I need a jeweler’s loop), but I’m not seeing a lot of amber yet.
Most of the buds on my plant look more like this:
As this is my first harvest, I thought I’d ask the thoughts of my more experienced peers. So what do you think?
PS. Ready to harvest or not, I’m having such a blast growing. Being able to see the trichomes with the naked eye all frosty over the leaves just makes me feel warm all over
PPS. Just thought I’d include a shot from my raspberry harvest. These suckers are so flavorful and I can’t eat them fast enough. Ridiculously good.
