The grower needs to develop a feel for every plant and this can only come with experience.
Obviously there are other factors to consider and everyones environment is different. However OP was asking why his buds have that fresh grass smell to them and in my experience this happens when you dont let the buds dry long enough before you bag/jar them. Personally i would rather smoke buds that are too dry than too moist.

Also i suggest dry trimming over wet trimming. Next time you harvest take off the big fans but leave the small sugar leaves on and dry trim them. Ive noticed in the past when you wet trim sometimes you get that fresh grass type smell.

Do you use any hygrometers in the jars after you jar up? Like the caliber III's? Did you take a look at the thread I recommended earlier in this thread?

Sometimes my bud dries in 5 days and as long as I catch it before it gets too dry, and follow the directions in that thread, everything turns out fine.

This issue starts with humidity during the grow and nutrients.

High humidity in flower will leave herb with a grassy hay like smell and a weird taste.

Also not flushing properly will affect your outcome. If using chemical nutrients you want to flush really well.

Best bet is to run organic soil or hydro. The bud should be loud from the moment you chop to cure.

The fresh grass smell comes from too high of heat and humidity. He smells it because his heat and humidity in the drying room are too high. You smell it when you don't dry enough and throw it in a jar. The warmth and moisture gives you that grass smell.
