Ready to harvest?

Cut it down when it looks like something you would want to smoke. If you want to smoke a lot of white hairs and clears, try it, let some go longer and try that too.

id smoke that, if I had more weed though I’d wait longer, you should have a few other plants not far behind, at all times. Always more weed, everywhere

Welcome to RIU. What farangar said.

Definitely look into a 100x jewelers' loupe-- with a light. They're < 20 bucks all day on amazon/ebay and you will never live without one once you own one.
You want to see trichs somewhere between cloudy/some amber to mostly amber - a preference you'll discover over a few grows- and this is something cannot be seen with the naked eye. All the hairs could be amber today and trichomes could still be clear. Every cultivar is different in that way.

Judging by the pics it looks like another couple weeks before that would start to happen. This is the time the base of the calyxes should swell up and get moar nuggy nuggety.

Alright I appreciate the information. My concern about leaving them out longer is mold

Good to know thank you. My concern is mold mainly. The days have been very rainy with high humidity..I covered them today with a tarp propped up so the rain would not get on them. I dont want to pull them late. I like the energy strains personally.

2-3 more weeks.

Why not invest in a jewellers loupe so you know exactly when it's ready to harvest? They are cheap and are the best way to know when the plant is 'done'.
Not really. The best way is simple. Wait until pistils are brown and receded then wait two whole weeks or 14 days then chop

How is that simple? That's still guesswork. Why not arbitrarily add 12 days?

Buying a $20 loupe and chopping when you see amber is pretty straightforward, imho. But to each, their own.

Early lemon berry was wondering if it looks ready to harvest to someone that is a pro..thanks
General rule of thumb is if you think it’s ready, wait another week.
For me there is a two week window for harvesting, I look through my little $15 hand held microscope and look for milky and at least some amber colored tricholms. If your plants are outside and the weather is favorable give them another week and you’ll be in that window from what I can tell.
