Nice plump nugs.... she came out bigger than my last run and I had 3 to 4 main tops per plant.

Looking at these pics makes me think I should be removing leaves while flowering..

Purple Urkle Harvest pt 2.. the chop

Took me almost 8 hours to chop these 4 plants. I took some smoke breaks but I'm glade it's done. My hands were so sticky and I was feeling woozy by the time I was done. Not a bad trim day, I've had longer.

I took this pic because I was excited to have one done... The first one is always kinda ruff until I get into my groove.

A nug frowning on a leaf stem... I thought it was interesting

And 8 hours later I was done. Filled up my tub nicely and had enough weight to bow in the sides of the tub. I'll have another update explaining my drying process along with some wet nug shots... Thank you everybody for checking out my journal.

I wanted to drop my Temps more but everybody in the house started getting sick and I kinda felt guilty turning the heater off... plus my lady friend would have killed me if I told her to suffer because I want purple buds...lol
Well done twox! :goodjob: and thanks for checking up on my grow. :48:

Thanx Greensmurf. Sorry about not checking in more. I went through a moment of being unactive but I'm feeling better and trying to be a little more active with everybody online and In real life..

Purple Urkle Harvest pt3... after the chop.

Everything is chopped and drying so I wanted to get some pics for everyone. The buds all look really nice and my tub feels really heavy. It takes me about 4 days to dry so my next update on the Urkles will be some dry shots and weghts..

Everything's looking really frosty. I can tell I was getting tired because I see spots I missed while trimming.

I know there still wet but they smell fantastic already. Once they dry and cure for about 2 weeks they start smelling like fruity pebbles.

The trim.

Even the trim smells good and seems really frosty.
20170127_193635.jpg

I have the trim spread out into 4 boxes to dry. I usually mix the leaves twice a day to promote a even drying. Once the trim is dry I'll freeze it and start the process of making some bubble hash so I can press it into some Rosin.. I use to ISO my hash until I tried the Rosin tech and I'll never go back.. The taste is really amazing with a low temp press.
20170127_193548.jpg

Scissor hash. This gets pressed into rosin too.. The flavor I get from fresh scissor hash rosin is amazing. I've tried live resin rosin runs before and I prefer dry runs. The yeild seems better and the rosin seems more stable. My live rosin usually comes out really sticky and oily.
20170127_193337.jpg


Some buds I accidentally chopped off during harvest.. I call these sample buds
20170127_193326.jpg


Some better pics oc the actual trim.

20170127_192830.jpg


A full tub. I'm kinda suprised how heavy she is. definitely hit my 6 oz mark but I'm guessing I'll be closer to 8. If I hit 10 ill be amazed. I still have a Blackberry to chop so I should easily hit my 8oz for the month.
20170127_192757.jpg


Since my tents are never empty I had to come up with a way to dry all this bud and this was my solution. The tub use a cheese cloth filter and my tents fans to draw the humidty out through a run of 4inch ducting. After 3 days I'll put a solid lid on and let them finish. My buds have turned out great using this technique and I've never had any issues with mold or over drying. Using my tents fan system also keeps the smell contained.

I'm sure I'll have more updates soon but it's time to smoke.. ;)

Well, it's official.. I'm watering every day now....
I'm not going to feed them every day so I think I'll use just water in between there scheduled feeding. I need to stick to 3 gallon pots and stop trying to run 2 gallons.


Birthday Cake with a little frosting. We're almost at the half way mark and there going fast. If I still have tons of herb at 8 weeks I'll let her go nine this time just to see how she likes it.

Big fat calyx under my leaves. I had to check a few because they're really big already. They're all seedless..

Some dead leaves due to being underwatered..

Update...
What a ruff week. With work, taking down my grow and putting it back up, watering, training, harvesting, curing and still having time for the family I'm completely worn out and I'm sitting on my porch smoking a purple urkle joint to my head while I make this update.

I chopped the blackberry after a 7 day flush and I'll post pics of her before chop soon. I'll also have a purple Urkle harvest update after that and then I'll get back into a regular schedule.

BirthdayCake at almost 5 weeks... Nice and frosty and she's back on a every 2 day watering schedule. The extra soil and daily waterings helped her out.. She's happy and will come down in 3 weeks..
20170131_184758.jpg


Two pics of the Orka Coookies... there a week behind the Bday cakes but she seems to take her sweet time.. I'll most likely run her 10 weeks..

20170131_184733.jpg


One of the Blueberries that just started her/his flowering scheduel. I need to keep my eyes on these three and watch for males. 2 of the plants look nice but totally different. The third plant seems like she hates life because she's a ugly mutant.

20170131_184710.jpg


Purple Urkle x Orka cookies. These three are as happy as can be. No complaints with them. Nice strong healthy ladies..

Orka x Viper cookies.
Some pics of her getting trimmed and wrangled. She was a 2x2 canopy but too bad, we need room for the other ladies too.

Blackberry harvest..
She finished up quicker than I thought and kept showing signs of late flowering defecincies so I flushed her and she's chopped and drying.

Nug shots:
The tops all turned out great. Nice and fat just like I wanted. Not really any white hairs left and I think she was done packing on weight. She smells like all the other blackberries I've grown but looks nice and plump this run. I'm excited to get her dry so I can sample her

Whole plant shots.
I have a hard time getting clear plant pics but I did my best. I cram a lot into my 4x4 so her tops are pulled close together. She did really good with the little canopy space she had..

Purple Urkle Harvest.. final update
Well everything is semi dry due to my high humidity and rainy weather. Poping my jars just wasn't doing want I wanted so everything is paper bagged in a attempt to draw out some more moisture.

Weight. 7.8 ounces minus the two small jars of popcorn.
With the blackberry I'm drying I definetly hit my 8 oz mark.. woot..woot..


20170207_153727.jpg
20170207_153650.jpg

The buds all came out dense and frosty. I definetly had a hard time capturing the purple colors with all those d@mn trichomes.
20170207_153543.jpg
20170207_153540.jpg


They smell like grapes and fruity pebbles at the moment and is super potent.. Everybody who's enjoyed her so far during the day is getting burned out after a couple hours. Definetly a night time smoke for most..
20170207_153532.jpg
20170207_153515.jpg


Half the nugs pictured here will be donated to my loving mother.. :circle-of-love: She's going to love it!!

She was a fantastic harvest but I wish I would have got a little more color. I have 4 more in veg so I'll try again. I'm very happy with this have st and the quality of the buds so I would call this batch a success. Next up will be the BlackBerry once it dries.
