    Update 48: Nov 15, 2021 Week 7 Day 2
    I changed out tubs one day earlier than originally planned. Water level was low in the tubs so I just went ahead and did their final tub change. Both girls will get nothing but ph balanced water and Flawless Finish from here on out. They’re looking happy and healthy and already bringing me lots of smiles. From this point on I will begin to daily remove leaves that have grown out of buds and start slowly cleaning them up and removing excess foliage in preparation for harvest.

      Ckbrew you got it buddy. Just cleaned CM OG up this morning before the lights went off. Planning on doing the same to BK as soon as the lights are back on. I’ll get some pics and post them before the day is up.

    Ck’s request:

      Thank you BU2B you have the talented touch it takes. I will need to modify my pruning methods. You the man.

      Ckbrew to be quite honest, I probably would have had more harvest weight if I had not allowed so many branches to grow. 48 flowering branches are easier to spread out, will get fuller colas and still insure a pound per plant. Around 38 flowering branches with around 6 inches of total flower will be darn close to 16 0z’s.

    Locked and loaded. The harvest prep begins. If they’re good enough for the grouchyoldman they’re good enough for me.

        Update 49: 19, November 2021
        Wow! That was fast! Hard to believe it has already been 15 weeks since starting the grow. Yet, here we are down to the wire.
        It is going to be a crazy few weeks at our house so updates and photos may not be coming in any kind of regular fashion. Other obligations will be cutting everything pretty close to harvest and drying time. I will post photos of Week 8 Day 1 as usual however, after that date it may be rather sporadic until I wrap this grow up.
        Harvest and drying photos along with the final tally and dried and cured weight still to come. About 4 weeks for all of that to happen. Estimated timeline:
        • Harvest date November 29
        • Final weight and close of this Journal December 20
        —————————————-
        21 grams (wet weight) of popcorn bud samplers from cleaning out undergrowth (about 9 grams dry)

          Thanks

        Just because it's Saturday... I don't know if any of you ever listened much to Simon & Garfunkel but this (in my opinion) is THE BEST rendition of Sound of Silence - since the original. It's rather oldish and even though about as far as I get into metal music these days is Nine Inch Nails and I'm not really a fan of being yelled at -> THIS version by Disturbed is just amazing.

          I totally agree. But watching that one sure made me feel old.

        About 1 week to go. Here’s a few of their parting shots as they prepare to leave the stage.

          When you talk about the final push, are you looking for little clusters of bleach white fuzzy hairs forming on the buds red hairs? I'm getting those along with yellow/purple leaves but not seeing much amber. I've been flushing since last monday night, was planning on starting darkness tomorrow. Chop Friday

            Smoklahoma yep, that’s exactly it. The final push will also help to fatten up your buds. Generally you will have 5-15% amber within 7-10 days from the time you first started seeing those little white tufts on buds that once looked finished. That is my preference. You can make buds ripen faster by increasing dark time to 14+ hours. Not recommended if you want the best harvest weight - but it is an option.

          Update 51: November 23, 2021
          Just had a peek at the girls after being out of town. Holy Moly are they getting dressed up for the ball! The fade is on - here are several shots from both plants:

            BRAVO Maestro, another Home Run!
            GWE is a better place for having you here!
            I grow using soil comprised of the compost I make combined with Foxfarm or other quality commercial soils as an amendment. Appropriate nutes as needed. State of the art LED lighting and an evolving system of environmental controls allows me to pamper my plants and let them tell me what they need.
            My goal is epicurean quality rather than high yield.
            I'm learning how to create cannabis tinctures and hashish and I almost always use a vaporizer to spare my aging lungs.
            Despite my avatar name I'm generally amenable and helpful. So, if there's a question I'm qualified to answer, hit me up!
