Default My mini 1st year Harvest

Here is my mini harvest of my Nugget hops. There are still some left on the bines that aren't ready yet.

I am guessing I'll have around as much on my 1st year Tettnang. The way I see it is any amount of Hops I get is a good thing

Outta all my plants the Nugget, Northern Brewer, and Golding were the only to produce cones. My Fuggle's bines didn't even make it to the top of the trellis.

That's about what I got the first year from the Fuggles & the Cascades. I had real hopes for Year 3 (2 for the Nugget and Mt. Hood), but way too cold. Had snow when they started sprouting and it didn't really warm up until the growing season was over.

I didn't have any extra screen lying around so i just cut up an old mesh laundry basket. It works great, it took 3 day in my garage to dry out my "mini" harvest.
