Harvest day pics and thanks!

Thank you to all for the ongoing help! I harvested my final two plants today (photos) and though both plants had troubles all season, the harvest was very fine indeed. It is typical grey, cool Seattle fall day, and super peaceful to just listen to the sound of raindrops and the snip snip snip of the scissors. While I covet the many amazing grow rooms on here, I also love working with the seasons and the natural cycles of planting, harvest, etc. Grateful.

The Skunk #1 finished with some beautiful fall purple color on the leaves too, extra bonus!

By the way, the scissors in the photos are my all time favorite, hands down–" ARS SS-320BT Steel Blade Cultivation Scissors" on amazon, $23. They are mild steel so need a drop of oil between uses. Amazing shears.

Here are a few photos:

Looks great. How much dry weight from those 2 plants?

Not sure yet, still wet. My two autos produced 5 oz total, and this looks to be similar or a bit more. I’ll update later.

All the small buds didn’t get harvested either, so it was probably another 30-40% over what’s in the photos.

Hey @Fergus, after drying, got abut 45g/1.6oz from the blackberry kush, and 82g/2.9oz from the skunk #1. Given all the trouble this year, I’m happy! Next year… >:)

Trick or treat :crazy_face:

Update on the four plants (Blueberry Auto, Amnesia Haze Auto, Blackberry Kush fem, Skunk #1 fem). These dried well, and went into jars with 62% RH packs. Burped periodically but not every day, and now about 6 weeks in jars for the photos and maybe 16 weeks for the autos. The autos smell good, Blueberry in particular is great, and was really grassy up front. Photos/fems still have the grassy/hay smell, but not as bad as they did; also getting some blue cheese now which is nice. Hoping they will still cure off some more since RH has been controlled, i.e. they’ve never been too dry. For next year, thinking I may dry trim in order to slow down drying, but since I live in the Seattle area, I’m always hesitant to take too long for fear of mold. I also realized that I dried on cardboard, which draws moisture out pretty fast, so could maybe wet trim and set them on a non-porous surface to slow drying a bit. Any experience out there on whether the fems will still cure to a decent dank smell? Potency and smoothness are both very fine. Hope all are well since the last Halloween posts!
