Lets see your 2019 outdoor plants!

So here's my delema.. My plant is maturing very uneven I have some main colas almost fully developed and some just starting. This is my plant. View attachment 906181
I have some main colas like this. View attachment 906182
And I have some like this. View attachment 906183
This middle stack is almost ready the lowers are 80% cloudy and the main is just starting to get one or two cloudy here and there. View attachment 906184
Any tips on harvesting a plant bit by bit over a period of a few weeks. Will this be too stressful for the plant. Can I remove the main stem from here View attachment 906185 happily and continue to mature the rest of the plant for harvest. Any info is much appreciated. Cheers
I would chop whats ready and give the rest time, plant will be fine

2019 harvest i noticed a few buds that got bud rot early October on my kimbo kush decided to take my ladies top tiers down 2nd and 3rd tier I left to grow man they plumped up beautiful crazy weather this season in Michigan .. "FYI Google molding bud " highly suggest trash it sorry for your loss don't get people sick this is why I grow my own flowers 💔
 
So didn’t think we would get this cold snap! Would like to let her go for another week preferably 2 to flush.. flushed last night only gave it beasty blooms last Friday. And we had heavy rain all week might be ok to pull idk if there is something I can do besides pulling it inside to save it.. let me know any ideas!
Also super stinky bud on this plant! Kinda surprised knowing it came from some straight shwag! I guess it’s all up to the cure!

Not sure if this qualifies, since the Boost paks that I was given (free samples) didn't seem fresh (squishy like a Boveda). In any case, My Boost didn't hold the R%H well and it fluctuated about 5-7% until I replace them with Bovedas I used a remote Temp/RH sensor from my tent to check.

I like the way you packaged, and have yet to use my vacuum sealer for weed. I am curious about your using a moist pack inside, since in theory, the vacuum sealing should prevent the weed from drying out..but IDK that for sure. Your input here would be appreciated.

Thanks @Buzzer777 I enjoy your posts.

I see you grow for hash. Endlessly curious--what kind do you make if i may ask?

I grow for flower, so cure is everything. I also need it to store beautifully--sometimes up to 11 months--so no oxygenization is also everything.

I do NOT use any of these products during curing. And I don't seal until I have a very good cure. The absolute shortest cure time in my eyes is six weeks. I refuse to release anything before that. I take most of the harvest to 8 or 9 weeks, and the rest i take to three months. "I serve no wine before it's time". 🙅‍♀️

For storage, I don't want to vacuum so much air out that the plastic 'shrink wraps' too tightly around. Crushes the bud!! I leave a bit of room as you can see from the pic. And that means there's oxygen sealed in with the flower. Even after a three-month cure, putting bud it in an airtight container can draw some moisture out from the plant. Bovedas and Boosts are both humidiccants, which can both absorb and release moisture to keep the air within the sealed container (be it a mason jar or a vac sealed bag) at 55 RH at all times.

I've never used Bovedas (but I'm told they can sometimes be problematic). Integra Boosts, on the other hand, are awesome in my opinion/experience--just make sure you buy them from company directly and that their indicator cards are light blue .

I also put a Stayfresh oxygen absorber in when i seal. Stored units are kept in a dark, dry, cool room and I'm always amazed at how well-preserved they are. No discernible effect on flavor or smell. (I've heard Bovedas can dull the terp profile--but I've never used them.)
