Top of the Hops

Just an update on the status of our Hop garden. J planted six rhizomes in early April. The Cascade have plentiful cones and are about ready to harvest. These were from the giant oversize rhizomes and I'm impressed that they produced this well the first year. I expect that I'll get enough for at least one batch. The others, the Fuggle and the Willamette varieties only have a few small cones--these were from the normal sized rhizomes and I expect that next year they'll produce better.
