Question 40-45° lat, when do you harvest??

Suppose to be sunny for about 5 days so I think I'm gonna flush once and pull in about a week, maybe 10 days. Haven't checked trichs and the hairs are still white on some smaller girls. But can't risk the rain, cold, humidity, rot/mold/rippers!! What are you guys doing??

I am at 43N and my goal is two more weeks. I thought about one more fert watering but the weather just isn't there for it; so it's flush time. Depending on the weather, I will cut them sooner or later than my two week goal.

It's tough growing where it's wet and cold. I have been spraying baking soda solution every few days to prevent mold/fungus. I have also been shaking the plants off every morning that's wet- helps dry them off a ton.

Its been real dry here at 41.5 for a couple of weeks now. My harvest usually goes from the end of Sept to the middle of Oct. Last season I lost three big nepali gals in early Nov to frost that needed until at least mid november to finish.

I'm hoping to get the majority out by the end of next week. Two chances of rain between now and then so I'll be busy removing dead leaves before that happens.

My biggest concern right now is potential caterpillar damage since I stopped spraying for them a few weeks back. (Only found two so far in a couple pounds of dry flowers. And those came from a prairie grow with less care than the main plot.)

Good luck to all.

Im at 41 degrees.

It was cold wet & rainy the last couple of days but now its nice, dry and warm in the mid 70s. I have a 30% chance of rain tuesday and a 40% chance on thursday. I am going to let my only girl go atleast another week. She looks real good with no signs of mold, bud rot or pests. As long as the weather stays decent, im going to let her fully finish. Every one of my last grows, i've had to cut early.

at 45 degrees north in ontario i would consider the season done on average by now, Nightime averages below 5 degrees and daytime highs below 15 do a pretty good job of shutting down the plants. Of course good weather or really tough plants can drag out the season for a bit but as far as i am concerned anything that doesn't finish by october 1st is more trouble than it's worth.
All i have out now are a few plants that are letting some seeds ripen for next year though had a few plants not wandered away in the dark a few nights back i would have been trying to drag it out a little longer.

Im at 43N, and 2 more full weeks WOULD be great.. My last nute watering was last Sunday and I'm now letting the rain due the flushing (I only used FoxFarm's GrowBig, BigBloom, and TigerBloom). I also wanted to feed more but with the recent weather I decided not to, I'll go out at least once before harvest and do a real flush with tap water.

The past week SUCKED weather-wise, rainy humid and cold every day to start October. But yesterday it was sunny all day high of 70F and low of 48. The next 10 days look good!! Supposed to be sunny almost everyday for the next 10 days with only 2 of those days with a chance of rain.. But we all know how that can change and fuck with our plans

But thanks for everybody's input and keep the replies coming!! Your all really helping me decide on my harvest date and how to do it. I'm trying to get a general concensus from people growing around my latitude on harvest time since I won't be going by chrystal color myself, but weather.. Cheers!

Hectic, sketchy, and not like I'd like it to be. Drying is tough for me this year, havve to do it semi-outdoors except I have access to a fan. On anything that has any mold or if weather during dry is going to be wet I snip all of the buds off the stems just as it would be going into a bag for sale, then I lay it out on a window screen. I had to do it to save a 1/2p and honestly from now on I think I've concluded that the hang is overrated & you can get it dried & sold faster by laying on a screen & getting rid of as much stem material possible. After that it gets dried slow in bags using the perfect cure method, allthough it's usually sold when it hovers around 62% with a caution to the buyer not to stuff it in a trunk for 3 weeks, lol.
