Daily Marijuana Harvest
Each day now I come home and check my plants. The big sativa cross (I’m pretty sure it’s a Red Girl x Dutch as opposed to the Purp – both came from Vancouver Seed Bank) is the one ripening fastest. I was afraid it was getting a bit of mold here and there, which surprised me, as it’s been hot and pretty dry. I pulled a few buds that looked like they might be dying, and since then everything has been ok, except…
….this nice set of buds got too heavy and broke the stem!
If you look through the buds in this picture you’ll see the stem that was supporting the top bud cluster. It’s not too thick, but I probably mentioned that it suddenly took off with a huge growth spurt back in July.

Today’s Marijuana Harvest
Today I went out and looked the plants over. So far it’s still really only the Red Girl that’s getting ready, but a lot of her buds near the top were ripe so I clipped them off. Here’s what I brought in:
A Nice Combo
What I’ve Learned Lately
I’ve read a few places that an early marijuana harvest gives you buds with a slightly different chemical make up, and as a result, a slightly different high. Early harvests mean a more motivated high and later harvests mean a more narcotic high. I can testify that the early buds did give me a clearer, more motivated buzz. As I’ve written before, at first I wasn’t sure the stuff was working, but it definitely was. I’ll have to cure these buds and see if there is a difference when I smoke them. You can read more about early vs. late marijuana harvests here or here.
