Trimming is super tedious
Trimming is one thing that so many people hate. It takes so long, but it isn't too bad when you got some good tunes or a podcast to listen to. I just finished giving this northern lights the final trim before I let it finish drying.
This plant had so many buds on it, even though it grew so dumb. I think if I wouldn't have bent the top down twice, it would have been like 6 feet tall. In a couple days when the drying is complete, I will be weighing this. I am hoping to get a little over two ounces from it, but it is hard to tell at this point.
One of the things that made the trimming process so long today was that there were so many tiny cat hairs on my buds. The room I had them hanging in must have had some fur on the floor and it got kicked up by the fan. But now, after about three hours, I got all the hair off of them. It takes forever to get the hairs off because as I was trimming and holding the branches, my fingers started getting sticky. I had to dip my fingers in isopropyl alcohol every few minutes just to get all the stickiness off.
My main focus with the trim today was to get the tiny sugar leaves that really don't have many trichomes on them. I don't get all of them off because I use a Volano to vaporize my weed. I've stopped smoking from a pipe or a bong mainly because I am not a fan of smoking and don't care much for the taste. Plus it burns my throat.
I can't wait for this plant to cure so I can see how it stacks up against my first northern lights harvest. I really enjoy the effects of northern lights, it is one of my favorite strains because it is so relaxing. I usually sleep way better with this strain compared to any of the other ones.
Over the next three days or so, these buds will continue to dry out and then I can start curing it. Tomorrow evening I will be taking my blueberry out of the dark and giving it a quick trim to get the large leaves off and then hang it up for a few days. Once I have the blueberry curing, I will have about two months or so of just growing the quad grape that just sprouted.
I don't know how I am going to trim all of that on my own though. There is going to be so much. I think I am going to have six to eight plants that will be ready for harvest all within about a week or each other. It will be crazy.
