Day 72 above soil

Chopping day is getting closer for the think differents. I have giving them 2 waterings with plain water.
I thinking they go down next weekend. I am not sure how to dry and cure them, any suggestions? I want the buds to smell as much as they possibly can. I think one of the automazars is going to the get started to be flushed in my next watering. Any tips on what I should buy for the harvest? Tools? Equipment? Or maybe there is a list somewhere...
But here are the 9 Tds.

If someone wants to relax, here is one thing i like to do.
Go to your ladies, bring up a chair, just sit there and listen to the sound of the fans and feel the light warm you in your face. Dream away and think you are on a paradise Island far, far away.....

I use disposable vinyl gloves and when I harvest a plant I start by cutting the branches off 1 by 1. I take the branch and first strip off all the fan leaves. I then use a pair of Fiskars Micro Tip Pruning scissors and trim all the sugar leaves flush with the bud. I then take the trimmed branches and place them in my drying rack to dry for 5-7 days or until the buds just break off the stems. I then trim off the buds from the stems and place the buds into storage containers. I take the buds out of the storage containers and place into a large bowl for 10 minutes per day for 10 days.

Fiskars Softouch Micro-Tip Pruning Snip recommended by the arthritis society, They come with a lifetime replacement warranty. One of the handles broke on my last pair, I used the warranty claim on the website and Fiskars replaced them at no cost.

I have a portable washing machine similar to the Bubble Magic 5 Gallon Mini Washing Machine that I put the trimmings in a mesh bag and place inside the washing machine, I then fill the washing machine with cold water and ice cubes and set it for 2 cycles. I then place my 5 Gallon All Mesh five Bubble bags inside of a 5 gallon pail then drain the washing machine through its discharge hose into the bucket. I then remove each bag one at a time as I drain the liquid from the bag. The trichomes are gathered in the bottom of the bags and are removed in different grades and pressed in a pressing screen to remove excess water. I then take my
Large Piranha Aluminum Pollen T-Press and press the hashish into convenient sized disks.

Hey pinky! I went and look at them. I am not sure how long it will take if i order them coz we dont have them here in sweden(at a first quick look). They are a little bit exclusive here :) High standard thats for sure. I will see how long time it will take if i order them, and will search to see if they possibly could be for sale on some website so i could have them send domestic. Thank u pinky. Happy to see you come visit again.

Glass is the preferred storage method used by most growers, but I've seen many big grows use tupperware containers because of the massive amount of bud needing a cure.

Allright. I think that can suit me better this time. Can i just pack them all together in a big plastic bag and put them inside? Then i can calm down a bit. I am a bit nervous i gonna mess something up. And for curing, whats best? Many small cans (1LTR) or fewer big ones(4LTR)? Thanks for helping a fresh guy out.

You can place your trimmings in a large plastic bag and freeze the trimmings until use. You can either use glass canning jars or a vacuum sealer and plastic to keep your buds in. 1 litre or 1 quart are the preferred size for storage jars but larger size canning jars can be used.

These type of canning jars are perfect
