Hi everyone! This is a general harvesting question directed at experienced growers from a first-timer: In general, how long is the window of optimal harvest time? I'm worried about cutting too soon, but I'm also worried about cutting too late. ~65% of the hairs on my plant have turned brown (more on some stems), but should I wait to get a 'scope to make sure the tricomes are ready? That would delay things by ~5 days, and I don't want to risk some of the THC degrading because I've waited too long. For some growing spec's: She's growing outdoors in Northeastern US. Seeds were started in April. I haven't taken good notes (or any for that matter), so I don't have a precise flowering date. My fuzzy memory tells me "mid-July." IN SHORT: What do you think? Cut now? Have you New England growers harvested yet? (A side note: the female I'm thinking of cutting has developed what *looks* like pollen sacs. I really doubt it's a herm, though, because these sacs look different from the males I cut a few months back and they've only developed in the last three weeks. Please tell me is normal for females nearing the end of their life-cycle!?!? I read somewhere it was, but that was only one source.) THANK YOU!!!
