Fall colors showing up in the midwest? It seems that all my hop plants are showing yellow leaves, haven't seen anyone else post this yet. My cones are still not ready to pick, but leaves are starting to drop off lower down.

Hop Harvest 1

2nd year plants with plenty left on the vines. Cascades from two plants on the screen and Centennials on the cookie sheets. Got 5.5 gallons of Cascades. Any idea what weight this will amount to when dried? I'm guessing at least a half pound.

Notice the giant Cascade hop with leaves growing out of it. I got several like this.

I have a couple of big funky Chinook cones like this. I'm thinking it's because I probably fertilized after some of the initial burrs formed.

What was the initial weight of your cones? If your initial weight was 25oz, expect about 5 dry oz. Take your initial weight and divide by 5. That's about what you'd expect dry.

Mine are starting to yellow as well, in Cleveland Ohio. Mostly the ones lower and older. Does this mean anything specific?

The plant is not actively taking up nutrients from the soil, instead it is utilizing resources already present in its tissues to account for the growth of the cones. It's been shown that additions of fertilizer once flowering begins isn't correlated to increased yields.

Not quite sure on the wet weight.. I'd guess 2 to 3 lbs so a half lb sounds about right.
