Hello dudes and dudettes, I hope you having a wonderful day because today is the #harvest day for Bubbas Gift #1 and #2!
-Bubbas Gift #1 top cola, tiny buds with loads of crystals #budporn LOL
It has been 4 weeks of veg and 65 days of #flowering for this little plant. It makes no sense to leave it longer as I need the space for other plants and that the Humboldt states flowering time of 50 days it is 2 weeks overdue already. The plant has been #flushed three times with plain water PH6.5 in 10 day period.

Before harvest, it is wise to do some #preparation for it as well. Some people love to leave the plants in dark for up to 48 hours before harvest, they are convinced that the procedure increases resin production in the last 2 days. Maybe if I find the space I try it out on Peyote or Blue Dream.
Sharpen your scissors, get a trimming tray where trim and crystals can be collected from, 2 (resin trim, waste trim) paper bags to store the trimmings in and I use a big cardboard box to hang the buds and dry them. If you prepare all of this a day before you can literally save hours looking for the stuff 5 min before the harvest.
-well prepared; a number of scissors from heavy duty to fine trimming and a couple of joints + vape pen infused with THC if joints run out
This Bubbas Gift was genetically fucked, even Humboldt admitted it themselves. Better that than denying - everyone can make a mistake. But yeah plants are nice and bushy, with a couple of twin branches and leaves, even found a male flower on one of the plants. To be honest, you cannot be not disappointed with the size of buds - they are ridiculously small but still beautiful and shiny.
-if I had a tent full of these there would be a lot of fucks this, fuck that, fucking them in this post. Smell is fruity with woody and piney and even ashy notes, to sum it up - smell is amazing
The usual way to do it is to remove all the fan leaves and leaves that can be easily pulled off by hand, to cut off branches in the length of the box you are hanging them in and trimming that branch of the plant and immediately hanging him.
-top cola #1 trimmed is blasting with resin
-top cola #2 is not much bigger but it is (for few calyxes) and smelling a bit more on the fruity citrus side
-sugar resin on both plants could be found on fan leaves; a box of Bubbas Gift
-off to drying in 55% humidity, hoping to get an ounce out of it but considering the size of the buds it will be tough
To conclude; a nice growing healthy plant with ridiculously small buds an amazing smell. Let's hope Peyote Critical and Blue Dream do much better - harvest is within a week. Exciting times are ahead, better calm myself down with a spliff.
Puff, Puff, Puff ..... remember to pass!
