California Dreaming is So Cal - 134 days one might be ready?
I have been pondering all day if one of my Feminized California Dreaming 100% Outdoor plant is ready for harvest. Thank you in advance for your expertise:
Bud Photo from today 9/5/2017 and magnified photos underneath:
This morning I looked at more buds on the same plant. 9/6/2017 - I found that some of the top buds have amber and milky. Below is a top bud. I took photos magnified from different angles. Do you see milky and amber too?
If so are these top buds with amber ready to harvest?
Harvest them before the middle and bottom buds?
I found the middle and bottom buds are still clear as you stated yesterday.

I think you have a little longer @KingShark. I do see some amber trichomes in the second set of pics so you are close.
Technically you could harvest now if you wanted depending on the type of buzz you are looking for.
But personally I would give it another week or so but check it everyday to see if there is more amber starting to show. It can happen fast switching from milky to amber so you will want to keep an eye on it.
Great job though brother.
@bob31 is right about the rot coming from the worms. They sneak deep into the buds and chew on the base of the flowers, and they just turn brown and mushy from the inside out.
It’s truly disgusting.
It’s been hot here too, a bit cooler now but last week was in the low 100s and real low humidity.
A few people on here from socal and a local buddy of mine all finding cabbage looper worms and mushy rotten brown bud damage, all around the same time frame.
Dig deep in your buds, way down in there and look for any kind of brown crap or eaten stuff. They hide real well.
