Cascades

C'mon spring get here! Can't wait to watch them grow even bigger this year.

These were just a few of my cascades from my 2nd year plant during last years harvest.

WOW... those are huge cones. I wonder if they will get bigger this year or if you will just get more. Either way, WOW.

Not sure how they can get much bigger, they were monsters and some of them were even larger than in the picture above. The 2nd year plant yielded me nearly 2 lbs dried before I gave the rest of the plant away and there was probably another 1 lb+ left on the plant. It was a monster.

Here's a pic of it at midway through the season. Cascade on left, 1st year Centennial in the middle and 1st year Columbus on the right.

You should make a zen hop cave. Just go in there in the evenings and breathe.

I just immerse myself in the foliage and if I meditate long enough the vines begin to grow on me and we become one :D

I grew cascades last year for the first time in plastic half barrels (because I was moving and didn't want to leave them behind). The cones grew to be about 2 inches long and I ended up with a pound! I was quite surprised.

Nice! Cascades love growing here in the northern midwest. Hard not to get them to produce well really.
