No questions this time, but rather a post of thanks and gratitude for all those who took the time to answer my newbie questions. I really appreciated the council, and I credit the forum with giving me the knowledge and help to not pull the harvesting trigger too soon. The recommendations I got on differentiating between the trichome maturation on the sugar leaves vs. the buds themselves probably upped my harvest weight by 20-25%. And the info. about mites and bud rot and how to spot and treat them was invaluable.
This was an outdoor grow. Lemon Dawg sativa/indica hybrid clone in a 20 gallon smart pot. Went into the sun on June 4, test harvested one branch on 9.10, and then did the full harvest today when I was beginning to see the
Plant in the early bud phase.
9.24 Wet just trimmed buds.

9/10 buds finishing their dry hang and a few days into mason jar curing.

My thanks again to the forum for all the great guidance!
