Hop Harvesting

It was time to harvest hops this morning. I had five Cascades, one Zeus, and one Magnum variety. First year crop.

Up on the ladder picking off hops:

12 ounces! Which is a lot more than I thought it would be.

Nice! Did you make a fresh hop beer or are you drying them?

One of my plants is ready for harvest tonight -- it's on the end and gets sun from a better angle. I'll probably be picking and drying for about two weeks or so as the rest of the plants mature.
