Here’s a quick update. After looking at the hops garden yesterday. I think I might break out the ladder and start harvesting some of the Ultra hops. There’s a lot of large cones present yet it seems to be setting a second (and more prolific) round of cones. Not that I’m complaining!
The Cascade hops are looking good and I’ll be harvesting them in a couple of weeks. Here’s one of the Cascade cones that I split open.
Look at that lupulin! The aroma is that of freshly cut grapefruit. Mmmm.
The Galena hops are growing, albeit slowly. They are over 6 feet talk now and are starting to grow burrs. If they don’t do better next year them I’ll replace then with Cascades.
