Hops Cones are Here!

After lots of tlc, our Nugget variety is finally producing cones.

Most of the hops plants were significantly stunted by the bug infestation. They also had a late start, so our hopes of having the bines climb to the top of the 20 ft. strings is not going to happen this year.

But it does appear as though we are going to have some really nice cones to harvest off of at least three of our Nugget plants. So far this has been a great learning experience for us and we sure have attracted lots of interest from friends and family.
