How well do those beer bottles work for watering? I'm assuming thats what they are being used for.

They're working well, I use them like a watering globe. It keeps them damp, when it gets dry out. Plus, I haven't gotten around to setting up a drip line yet.

What do you do? Just fill it up with water and shove it into the ground?

Yep, its that simple. I check on the plants everyday, so it's not a big deal, filling them up.

Discovered a hop cone on my 1st year cascade. It's on the smallest of the 3 bines growing, which is only about 16" tall. Is this normal? Was stoked to find it.

Interesting, thats super early i think....

Not sure if its a good thing or not though, as i understand it hops dont start shooting out laterals and flowering until they are nearly done extending upwards. If thats the case your going to likely have a very small yield on the plant this year...again i could be wrong.

One cone = Single Hop Beer.
