So I guess I might be talking to myself here, but I thought I'd post a partial update, ahead of an update with photos later. 

Just finished my harvest, yesterday, 14th November...:ohmygod:

Really astonished that it was possible to take it this far. Over the past two days I harvested the second half of my third and final Killer Kush plant (first half harvested last week, 7th November), and the whole of my Special Queen plant. The latter was really a random afterthought of a plant out (planted out Aug 23rd...), and while it struggled to bulk up properly as the light and the warmth faded (so it's leafy and the buds are mostly wispy), it has flowered now for almost 8 weeks and the pistils at least look mostly ready.

Ultimately, both the KK and the SQ were amazingly bushy and minimally affected by mould, so I now have a packed wardrobe and likely another oz or two of bud.

Originally I thought October would be pushing it, so I am quite astonished to be harvesting successfully in mid-November. 

For some additional context (as I'm sure the few reading this won't remember the details of my grow), I germinated my three KKFVs and my SQ around the 20th July after asking advice on here, before planting out between 11th-23rd August. My expectation and apparently the expectation of others on here was that it was a long shot and that I'd be lucky to get 10g per plant.

I think it is quite a testament to these plants that my KKs grew to an average of 6ft, my KK1 has already given me exactly 1oz dry, KK2 has given me about half that, and KK3 should yield at least another oz. The SQ should yield close to an oz. Altogether these plants will account for half of my total harvest or more, so it was a massively good choice to take the risk. And thanks to those who helped me make it.

Apart from all that, everything is smoking nicely. The sativas are energetic and psychedelic and the indicas are heavy and mesmerising and... psychedelic. Perfect.

I'll be back soon to post some photos of drying buds, curing buds, etc, just for the hell of it.

p.s. was quite a poignant moment today as I finished gathering wire and hacking down my plant skeletons at plot 3 (and lobbing them into the bushes) and finally cleared my final plot. Good feeling though.

By cabbage I guess you mean 'leafy and sparse'? That's pretty impressive anyway - I did think there would probably be at least a few on here who are going even later than me... Seem to remember someone naming 24th of November or so as their cut off, provoking some debate...

I could maybe have left my SQ longer, but some of the leaves had started to spot and crinkle and the weather ain't getting warmer or sunnier or drier. Had the feeling in the end it had gone as far as it would go and the bud looked quite frosty. In any case, my experience increasingly is that all my bud gets me comparably high, regardless of ripeness or density at harvest, or appearance once dry. My Frisian Duck looks ridiculous, wispy and transparent and stalky, and it probably takes an extra toke or two, but in the end it gets me nice and high for a couple of hours, so I don't really care...

Next step for me is working out what to do with all these boxes of fresh trim I have sitting in the freezer. Already have some coconut oil from an earlier batch, so I might make some more, but I feel like I should do something more interesting... Is your oil potent @SlimPikins? How do you use it? If it's milder that's fine, but what about the other effects - is music still enhanced, is it still fun, does it last...?

@Spliffman100  it'll be as potent as that particular strain if using one, we've a box of mix trim and whispy buds so should be up and down with plenty flavours going on.

For production we'll be using our own interpretation of Ricks method, using isopropyl alcohol. 

Video of Ricks here incase you've missed it :yep:

I still have a few out too. 2 plants on guerilla. don't know if I'm even going to harvest those, it was a spot meant for seeds but most seeds got eaten by some animal, and I mixed in a few plants of a later cross. one became a very beautifull giant plant(I guess it's around 3 metres tall now), but started flowering way too late. 

everything else from that spot was harvested a week ago, picked out the few seeds I could find and going to hash it all(not much buds).

last week I also harvested the last remaining plant from another spot. another own cross, earlier in general but this was a late pheno. it had some rot, but most of it was still ok, very loose/airy though, and pretty leafy. it does have decent trichome-coverage though, and since it was so late it had more yield as the earlier plants. it's upper leaves also turned a nice red-purple color.

 

but I also have some out on the balcony that do have some decent buds. same late cross, one of the ancestors was kumaoni, which is why it's late, and the bud structure varies(this year was the f2), most of them are not that fat but some have a decent calyx/leaf ratio. also some very leafy though.

there's one of those still outside I'm going to use for further breeding, she has the fattest buds of all plants of this cross I grew, also pretty leafy though. but she also doesn't have any budrot(or stemrot) yet, despite the shitty november weather. 

going to harvest those last ones on the balcony soon, but I don't have room to dry available right now, and they're not that much affected by mold anyway(there's another plant that does have some stemrot-issues, so I just harvest branches as soon as they develop stemrot, but she only had her first budrot yesterday, so despite the stemrot-sensitivity I'm not losing much yield by leaving her out).

@fryge just so you know, I was chopping kumaoni boxing day, Nanda devi was a week later but solid till the end, few piddly bit o budrot but the rest was sound. Went through quite a few snow storms, wouldn't run again though, bones cannit take the chopping in the cold, even with decent gloves ya hands go blue, much better sitting on a chair with shorts on and sunshade in the summer ;)

All taken in good jest.

 

And just for the record I do usually take manure to my plots. 1 in particular now has stunning soil that was to start with mostly clay and stone :)

 

 

Hello @beezee a little bit of effort pays off in the long run. I've got the sheep muck, all bagged and ready to go. Now I just have to get it from here, to the garden. 2 bags at a time, in full stealth mode:ninja:

 

Ive been carrying more horse muck down to my on site compost pile, plant collars are on the girls and the irrigation is now sorted. The final part of the puzzle is the mulch cover and then mother nature can do her thing.

Excellent, see if you can get a top up manure mulch down before they start flowering. It worked a treat for me last year!

Great idea, thanks. The flowering will only begin in 2 months time. I will also apply more bone meal and worm castings before they kick in. I don't fancy using the SOP, so comfrey teas and the ash from burnt citrus peels will be my main source of K. I still have 5 litres of biobloom left over, as a additional boost.

Just had a cheeky single of sharks breath harvested on 11th November lat 54-55.  Lost a good bit to mold. Did a silica gel dry for stealth and convenience and my oh my I love these late finishing wild card strains.  Okay maybe not as dense or visually appealing but smell, taste and high is stonking.   Not as good as the OG kush from last year but still a surprising result from a freebie knocking around in the seed tin.

The wonderer returns :) great to see old faces still around. 

Had a pretty poor season this year but still just managed to fill some jars to keep me going a while :bong:

Got a few plants going indoors to help keep the jars topped up :skin_up:C99bx-1, Cheesy Princess,  Chinese yunan x Egyptian sinai. 

:smokin:

Bubble bags and a pocket full of hash that leaves a trail of victims in it's wake.
