Default Home grown hop harvest

Has anyone harvested their hops yet? I just pulled about 2 oz. off my first year fuggles. Also, dose anyone know how your supposed to get the plant ready for the colder months so you can regrow next year?

I've thought about growing some hops. What temps does it have to be for them to live? Where did you get the seed to start from?

Harvest time is the end of Aug and into Sep.

Little early for harvesting here.

They die back to the root every year.

i had plenty of lupulin on mine and they were turning brown on the tips, so i went ahead and harvested... plus my deck is about to be ripped up and replaced by the home owners ass. mine have woven around the railing too much to even think about moving, so i had no choice. Also they are rizomes not seeds bigkevj.. just look for them next year online in early sping.

Mine are getting close. Perhaps next weekend. Now I gotta figure out how to dry them.

Put them in a small (2 or 3man) tent with a dehumidifier for about a day

Let them die back and then cut the vines at ground level and mulch with compost.

I don't think I'll get anything from my 4 plants this year. they pretty much look like crap.

They just cut the bines off at ground level when they harvest.

I've been to lots of gasthauses where they'll decorate the room with the vines (bines) like garland. That's my plan.
