1st grow.. 1st harvest.. originally worried about yellow leaves in late flower.. now concerned why a lot of my leaves are still green close to chop time.. when most of images I've been seeing here the majority of leaves are yellowing.. it that okay?... or what.

Looks like you git loads of clear trichs. Plan to harvest after they all turn cloudy. Some members allow a percentage of the trichs to go from cloudy to amber. Search for similar threads, if interested.

Looks good and frosty.

Yep! Check the trichomes. There's no better method. I still do that, but also observe other indicators.

The leaves tell us about the vitality of the plant. I try to keep leaves green during the early flowering stage. The green color means they're still providing the plant with what it needs. Yellow leaves can be removed. During late flowering, yellowing leaves can mean that the plant has used most of the remaining nutrients. Yellowing also indicates senescence (biological aging), which means the plant is nearing the end of its life.

Good explanation, i would only add to make sure the leaves are not dark green near the end. That will be some awful, harsh smoke no matter how long the cure.
