Nice harvest, but if you hadn't accidentally pulled down the bine...you would have let those go another week or so...right? All of mine look at least that ripe, but I don't think they are ready. Sorry about the ladder fall....I did the same thing this weekend while blasting a hornets nest in a vent...my ladder folded like a lawn chair when I got to the top...it sucked!

Well the Centennials were actully ready and the columbus as as well but the cascade could have gone another week maybe. The northern brewer could have gone anoth week..... but there very few nothern brewer and columbus. I think they are going to be good as the centennial smells great but this my first year gowing hops so i am going on books and this site for how to do this.

Becareful on thosee ladders dude....falling really hurts----

The pic with all the vines on the table right in the center is a brown stick that is actually an insect
