Default 2012 hops harvest

Well I did not see this thread yet, so i thought I'd start one. Its that time of year again(and this years weather threw everything way off), so lets get some harvest numbers rolling.


I gave everything from my 40 centennial plants to another hbt member, he took bines and all last I heard he estimated he had close to half picked off the bines, and was at 4 lbs wet weight. As i get pm's i will adjust what i have entered, but for now


4lbs wet harvested lol easiest harvest i ever had(thanks for taking em john hope they make fantastic beer good luck to u in the future glad to have met you)

read the post he is still picking. that was estimated weight on a guessed half. Well and considering i hacked everything to the ground mid may, never watered(despite declared drought in my county) and never added any nutes this year do to lack of time with my selling my house for an international move. Im happy so far with the #'s and tha fact that they will get brewed with, I grow em as much for the appearance they give my beer garden as much or more than i car about harvest #'s
