BobDigi’s first harvest results

Strain: white widow fem
Seed to weed time: 122 days

This was an absolute blast. I got lucky and had very little issues with my first grow. A lot of that was due to the massive reading I did on this site ( a good 3 months of reading before joining). The other reason was a great writeup from an old member on this site @jasong. I emulated this grow and had very similar results.

On to harvest day

It wasn’t until I set her on my table in my garage that I realized the amount of work that was about to take place

A few hours in

8.5 hours, 10 or 15 beers, 10 pairs of gloves and 3 bandaids (careful with those fiskars) in

My first skeleton


Had about 8 buds this size. Plant was topped and scrogged so no main cola

And the wet weigh-in for a total of 529.7g plus 35g trim and larf.

Drying required the biggest learning curve for me. This requires more experience, I think, than the rest of the grow. But now they are in their jars sitting comfortably at 60-65% without any assistance (boveda).

Final weigh-in

This grow was done most of the way with a viparspectra 300 which actually drew 122w from the wall and finished off her last 4 weeks on the qb 136 set to 115w. So right at or above 1g/w. I went in hoping I’d get at least 1oz and walked out with more than 4x that.

I will journal my next grow (as with learning to grow properly there is also learning to journal properly) as I have seen how y’all’s journals help as your journals have helped me tremendously. Love you ILGM forums

Wow really nice work. Love the trim job. Congratulations on a fine grow!!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::sunglasses:

I picked up a bowl trimmer. Hand trimming is a PITA. I only grow for personal use and occasional gift to friends. I still hand trim some of the finer buds, but I am pressing rosin more often so super clean trim not a big deal.

I have the 19" but essentially the same. Love my trimmer! I have found it is smart not to over fill it. Put in a reasonable amount at a time and it works better/faster than cramming too much in at once. Will give you excellent shake for edibles or blunts. :slight_smile:

I’ll put in one bud at a time if it saves me from a full shift of cutting weed “hair”.

Put the bud in the bowl, turn the crank and add hours back onto your life.

Lol ill see if there are videos. I guess its more sand the floor then trimming bansai trees?

It’s got a blade underneath the grill that cuts of the excess. Think of it like an upside down lawnmower.

initial smoke report.?

I could get stoned off the fan leaves. I rarely smoke. My wife is who this bud is for and she’s been enjoying the smoke since week 6 of flower. She’s a new smoker so she’d probably be happy with brick weed. The real smoke report will come from my buddy that goes through a few oz a month. But he’s not getting any until it’s cured.

I hear you on trimming. I’m on my third plant harvested this week, with another to go. I have dreams I’m trimming and trimming and trimming. That 19" bowl trimmer is right up on my list with a good dehumidifier.
