Default Harvest Nugget hops?

I have 5 nugget hills, many vines each. I purposefully did not give the nugget plants as much fertilizer as I did last year. I did not pick all the nugget hops last year because the yield was so high. I had 2.5 lbs and stopped.

I can't decide if I want to harvest my nugget hops. I'll probably still harvest a 5 gallon bucket worth in volume but anything past that will not be used by me.

If anyone thinks I should pick all the nugget hops for them let me know. I live in the central coast of California. Local exchange would be preferable.

If it were me I'd pick the whole bunch and sell what ya don't use cheap... If you're only interested in dealing locally - post an ad on the local craigslist - many don't give a rats behind about exact AA's, you could probably even have someone local pick the hops themselves once you pull what you want...

shipping hops is pretty cheap since they are so light...I would pick em and sell them for market for all your hard work. But I definitely would not let them go to waste
