I harvested my grow this year in stages as required by circumstance. The first strain to come down was Vampire Cookies, then the first stage of DMT Dream (that strain came down in three stages). Monsterberry was the next strain to finish, then Sunday Stallion, quickly followed by one of the two Mimosas. The second mimosa came down three days later and produced much better than the first (the second cut was primo quality in comparison). Next came the Blue City Diesel’s which took a bit longer than last season for some reason, which only left the Blue Jack.

The Blue Jack cut stayed up over a week longer than everything else, and still did not finish completely. That was my larfiest strain and I will not elect to grow it again.

Next season I will be growing DMT Dream, Vampire, Monsterberry, Blue City Disel, and maybe Copper-Chem (Chem Dawg/Star Dawg cross) - that ended up being my friend’s leading strain this season on his farm.

This episode’s video shows the damage caused to my last plant left standing due to one final greenhouse collapse, which was what spurred my decision to harvest it that day instead of waiting another week… the nights were also getting to below 40 degrees F pretty consistently at that point which was another factor in my decision. I also explain my plans for next year’s garden, which will include more in-ground plants and raised beds, a few 100 gal pots instead of the 45 gals I have been using, and building proper greenhouses for rain cover.

**Despite all the negatives this season brought, there is still love** ![IMG_20191006_171657_066.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/elamental/B3mA2hQM-IMG_20191006_171657_066.jpeg)
