Here's that same bud and branch. They were done enough for me and were going to be in the way of the plant I'm taking down now. So I cut the first of im guessing almost one hundred. 20201029_175031.jpg20201029_175230.jpg
I had just given her a prespray before her wash, which is minutes away. So I'm thinking Halloween for the rest. I have a hard time cutting them though. Heck, I meant to cut my I.G. Cush down at the end of September or the first week of October and she's the one I just pulled this branch for. All of them seem too pretty to harvest.

Ok i checked the whole plant over (what i could reach anyway and that took a long time) and she's just not where I want her to be quite yet. The trichomes look great they are almost all milky-white and there's a decent amount of amber too. Just not as much amber as I want yet. I want this lady to be something Frenchy Cannoli would want to work with, as I do love hash. And, I will be using a sizable amount of this year's crop for just that. :weed:

So, still not there yet,,, but close!

Here's a couple close up shots of our Passion Fruit plant,,,20201103_144158.jpg20201103_145035.jpg20201103_144809.jpg
I believe we have reached the point where she will begin the next part of her journey. I will check more with the microscope this evening. But tentatively, I believe she's looking at a Friday harvest time!

Wellllllllll,,,,, the decision to harvest has been put on hold for a couple more days. She is looking great and all, I just want the trichomes to have a little more time to ripen a some more. I'm looking for a lot of amber and we just aren't quite there yet. But soon...

Most of the fan leaves are done. But a few are still hanging in there. So I'm going to wait till they have all changed. She is also developing more color shift on the bud leaves now. Getting stickier by the day!20201106_075014.jpg

Welllllll,,,,,, I went into Parts Unknown this morning before I removed the light dep. plastic to see how everything was. Everything looked great. 20201107_085331.jpgSo I took a branch and checked it out under the scope and saw what I was waiting for! Our lady, the Passion Fruit plant, was ready to come down....
So I called my buddy at 7:00 am (yes there are a lot of us potheads that get up early- I was up at 4:30). And before i could tell him why I called, he knew. So here's how it went.-
While waiting for him to arrive, I started removing the remaining yellowing fan leaves. And when he showed up, we started. I obviously didn't get to all of the leaves. That's going to take a while longer...The plant is freaking huge after all...
20201107_231400.jpg Here's my buddy un loading some of the branches beside the washing bins.20201108_000634.jpg.What the main stalks looked like after we were done. The last load of branches is off to the lower right.

And here they are hanging up after their wash. There's a box of them in the lower right corner we set aside to run some fresh hash. I'm going to chill it in the fridge overnight. 20201107_114814.jpg
This plant was awesome! I don't know if I will ever be able to tell all of you just how much is actually there,,, but it is a freaking lot! I'm going to be trimming this stuff for ever..... Well, at least what doesn't go into hash. It's been fun hanging out with all of you cats and doing this thing together. And I am looking forward to starting the Sherbet comparative grow with all of ya too! Thanks again to everyone at The Vault for making these happen! You are all awesome, I love you people!
Good luck friends!

Just in case anyone is still paying attention to this grow...... Its all done! Well not all trimmed, but its dry and trimmed close enough to know what she made. Does anyone have any guesses?
Here's a couple of her buds I'm trimming now 20201205_170908.jpg20201205_172914.jpg

As to the smoke report,,, just freaking amazing! It smells and tastes like fruity cheesecake. The smoke is thick and smooth. When you get done smoking there is a wonderful lingering aftertaste that again tastes like you just ate the best fruit covered cheesecake that has ever been made. I love this plant. I again want to thank the people at The Vault and Dutch Passions for the opportunity to grow such a great plant with all these other cool people. It's been a great time!
