Harvesting and curing Outdoor sour diesel

So my first grow I would consider semi successful. This 1 sour d plant which was from a feminized auto flowering seed yielded me close to an oz of bud. I didn’t exactly yield what I had hoped, I had hoped it would have yielded at least 2 ounces. All in all I probably spent around $70 considering cost of seed, soil, perlite, 5 gallon bucket and nutrients. Still better than buying on the black market or dispensary prices. Buds have only been curing a couple days after drying for close to a week. Buds are not very dense nor do they smell particularly strong, I would love to have a pro/connoisseurs rate my weed. The smell is pleasant, not strong and the taste is very smooth. The high is really nice, I smoked some sugar leaf last night and I really enjoyed it. I am gonna keep doing this until I get really good at it. It was fun! Rate my bud according to the pics!

Good job. 1 ounce seems to be the typical yield for the first time grower, so don’t be dismayed. I bet you will yield 3-4 ounces on your next grow.

Congratulations ! Good job. I can remember my first plant just like it was yesterday many years ago in the corner of our families Potato Patch. I didn’t get a lot of buds but what I got was much better than anything I could buy at the time. From that day I’ve been hooked on growing. Great Hobby !

Good job
My first grow was a mess. My only advice would get a good fertilizer and schedule feeding. I did and so far i pasted what i did last yr. Better taste, yield
Etc.

Those buds look amazing! I currently still have a lot going on. I have 2 seedlings that I will grow outdoors and I want to implement the SCROG method. I have 2 more ladies on an indoor grow that are 3 weeks from harvesting and i have an outdoor sativa that is just beginning to flower and is around 8 feet tall!!! I definitely went all in and I cant wait to keep learning and having more success!

Nice buds man! I’m with you on going all in this was my very first time growing and I did multiple plants in hydroponics, some in mixed pots, and a few in my garden…my auto just finished up I would have liked to keep her going another week or two but humidity took over and some serious bud rot started. I believe she did get pollinated from a stray hemp plat across the street that I found 2 weeks too late…but here are my buds still hung up and drying now

Very nice sativa you have there! Let that flower for a long time! Dont get jumpy with the pruning sheers too early, she will reward you with far more than an ounce of weed if you can be patient :wink:
