Default Late Harvest in NC?

I planted my first rhizomes in May and have been anticipating the harvest ever since. I have a cascade and centennial plant. From what I have read, the NC harvest period is typically mid August. Well, it's mid September and I just spotted flowers on my cascade plant and have yet to see anything on the centennial. Is there still hope for the centennial and is this a later than usual bloom for cascades? Check out photos here - http://www.lukesbrews.blogspot.com/2...t-is-near.html

Hopefully these centennial's start popping soon!

Raleigh, here. I harvested my first year Cascades back in mid-August. They probably have a few months until the first frost. I would just keep an eye on them and if you get some, you get some, but from what I've read the real harvests start with 2nd and 3rd year plants.

Thanks Darwin. Would love to get close to the NC State hop project there in Raleigh! I will stay patient but hopefully get a little something to hold me over til next year.

Here in asheville there is also a NC state hop project that works with the one in raleigh. They have a mighty fine experimental hop yard near mills river.http://southernappalachianhopsguild.blogspot.com/
