Most of my notes on this under the 'Liberty Haze Harvest section.

Didn't give this strain enough time, so that's on me. Started chopping at F68, took this down at F70 when I absolutely had to hang in the tent or risk stinking up the whole neighborhood. Trichs weren't fully developed, so a little nervous about the smoke on this. Worst-case scenario I'll turn it into some bubble hash or infuse into oil/butter. Not a knock on the strain. In fact, this one was super promising the whole way through, smelled like bubble gum, and was excited to see how it wound up. Anything sub-optimal, totally on me. Big colas, foxtailed a little bit but were still looking great at the end.

Wrote my notes up in the LH Harvest section. Check 'em out.

This strain had some persistent light/nute burn issues, but as stated in the other harvest notes: almost certainly my fault. Trichs on these ladies looked absolutely perfect when they came down. This is the one I'm most excited to sample after a solid cure. Smelling like orange soda and hops. It rules.

Chopped everything down. Really happy with the harvest. Had a minor panic over the drying/curing process. Initially thinking I left them drying too long and dropped rH past that 55% floor-- but a week in jar and they're springing back to life (less grassy/hay smell and more like the amazing bud I was sniffing while it was growing.) Been holding off on sampling until they're really ready. Will have to add in those sections later.

Began the trimming process by separating the cola tops from the fluffier, pale under developed buds. Really affected two of the LH more than any other plant. So the tray photos/final weight for those two definitely smaller than the rest of the run.

Weighed after drying for a week.

Definitely have a lot to improve on next time, but man I'm hooked. Lessons learned:

1.) Top earlier-- don't be afraid to go at them early on.
2.) Smaller containers and smaller plants. I got greedy and ambitious for my space with the 3gal pots, and led to some headache and a too-dense canopy.

2.) Related: veg less-- flip those lights as soon as the plants are about a foot high.

3.) Dial in the nutrients-- in my case, don't mix nutrients formulated for hydro with soil and expect there not to be a little burn. (Nutes were free though, so price was certainly right.)
4.) Flower time estimates are just that-- estimates.
5.) Harvesting is a time commitment! Set aside the weekend.
6.) Dry slower, longer. Trim less wet, to prolong the process.
7.) Breathe! It's all good, and there's always next time.
