Just ten years ago, cannabis harvests came down in utter secrecy. Nowadays, the best growers market their finished crop—like a 24/7, global, online Fashion Week.

This month, millions of cannabis plants stand camera-ready in the fields for a final close-up. Social media offers the global forum to experience the joy of the annual cannabis harvest. Scroll through the more than 27,000 photos tagged #croptober on Instagram. You’ll see backyard harvests, mega-harvests, biodynamic harvests, and barely-made-it harvests. Bask in the vicarious joy of a year’s work come to fruition, or share in the defeat as mold, rain, wind and fire dashes farmers’ plans.

If you’re harvesting, or see something cool, make sure to mention @leafly on Instagram. If we ❤ what we see, we’ll feature you as one of the Official Days of #Croptober at Leafly, which you can check out below!

The 31 Days of #Croptober

Below are Leafly’s daily picks for the Croptober harvest, updated weekly.

Still reeling from the beauty of harvest season. Spending time on the farm is so grounding. The sights, the smells, the smiles. They put me in such a good head space. All the fresh cannabis doesn't hurt either 😂🤣 🌱🔥✌ #tbt #croptober #harvest #harvestninja • • • #aviddabber #Seattle #leafly #onlydabthebest #onlythebest #onlysmokethebest #dab #dabs #cannabis #dabbing #dablife #dabstagram #dailydabbers #weshouldsmoke #highsociety #stayhigh #concentrates #710 #420 #710community

One year ago today the Tubbs fire came from the backside of our property and burnt through our ready to harvest 10,000sq ft crop, took our home and all of our possessions… it left us homeless and penniless all in an instant. Overcoming that kind of devastation brings to light so many beautiful lessons and deep reminders… love, family, community, drive and strength have led us to today when we look out over where our house used to be and it’s a sea of green grown with barely enough funds but a hell of a lot of love and dedication. Watching my partner @ograzorgrown fight to keep the dream alive this year has been nothing short of amazing… I’m so proud of us and how far we’ve come.
