Been four weeks since last post on hops, how time flies! Cascade at home about ready for second picking, Cascade at store about ready for first picking.

Thought I would have picked by now, they look ready, but don't feel ready yet, maybe next week.

I just picked 17 oz of cascades today. Looks like that I may get another pound in a couple of weeks. Plenty of cones left but they are pretty small at this time.

Got around to picking hops at store front, had to have a ladder to get them loose at top before letting them down. Picked 44 ounces, over 4 gallons, have drying now, will see dry weight in a few days, then pick some more at home.

Sadly mine are still struggling. Hopefully next hear they'll take off. I got mine late in the spring and think they just got too late of a start. Longest bine is about 12 feet.

I got another 3.5 oz dried this week. I am brewing a red ale with 100% my hops. Pretty excited to see how it will turn out!!

Good to see yours doing good tdbc2011, and sorry to see yours are not BadDeacon. Mine dried out to an even 12 ounces, and I vacuum bagged them Sunday. I made an all Homegrown Cascade hopped AIPA late last week with Some of my June pickings.

Picked second round of hops at home. Totals are 38 ounces of Cascade and 5 ounces of Nugget, should dry to about 10 ounces and 1.5 ounces I think.

Have made a good many batches of beer with all homegrown hops, all cascade and nugget bittering, cascade late additions, but 3 weeks ago, I made my first homegrown, all nugget APA. I kegged it this morning and took a 1 ounce taste sample before dry hopping and it was better than I expected looking forward to tasting finished product.
