colorado hop growers, update needed.
here in denver i live in an apartment, so i unfortunately don't have a yard or a deck, so no hops for me. but i am aware of a few wild troves up the hill (only brewing a year so this is my first wild harvest hunt). i don't have a lot of free time due to work, and class starting up (graduating with a finance degree here in dec.), to get up to check them out on my few days off for a picking schedule. so i was wondering if anyone could give me an update on how your hops are looking as to how this heat has affected, if any, your harvest time. i cook for a living and know the palasade peaches are a month early so was wondering if hops have been affected too. any info on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

thanks guys,


edit: also, if anyone is around this elevation, the elevation of the area i will be picking is about 8200, in the front range.

I live in Fort Collins and have picked some of my Saaz. I imagine with how they have looked the past two weeks, I will harvest the rest of my saaz this weekend and all my centennial the following weekend.

I just harvested on 8/9. You're probably about ready.

I'm over in Fruita, and about 1/2 my cascade are ready to harvest.

Just checked on a front-range patch today and it's about ready. Anytime in the next 3 weeks would get a good yield.
