I don't have much to show for mine. A couple of months ago, my plant was doing well. Now, because of the heat, it isn't doing so well. It appears to be cooling off finally in Wi, so we'll see what next month brings.

Here are pics of my 2nd year Vancouver balcony hops. I have 2 plants - Willamette on the left, Cascade on the right. 2 lines per plant, 2 bines per line attached to 3 points. The containers are large rubbermaid (about 125L) full of potting soil (Cascade on the left in this pic). The centre container is a failed vegetable garden. The last pic is the view from the upstairs neighbour's balcony. There are a lot of burrs, hopefully they all turn into decent cones.

These are my first-year Cascades. I planted two rhizomes from Windy Hill Hop Farm in southern Illinois this spring, and they seem to be doing pretty well. There appears to be a bit of aphid damage on the lower leaves, so I gave them a light spray insecticidal soap. Burrs actually started forming two weeks ago, so for first-year bines I'm doing ok.

Update on the first year Brewer's Gold. I've got some yellowing on the outer edges of some of the leaves but the plant doesn't seem to be struggling.

And holy carp, those look like real cones!

Harvested a couple of oz's of nugget and 15 oz of cascade today.probably only a 10th of the total but these were the first to bur and I didn't want to let them go past their prime.

Pulled the trigger on my Cascades today, harvested what will be about half of the season yield if the remaining cones fully mature. I pulled 65 ounces wet weight off the bines today.



Clipped a bunch of angels, eleven of them together weighed almost an ounce.


Moved the single tier (in progress) out of the shop, "liberated" some window screens and assembled my high tech hop drier



All of that to put ~13 ounces of fresh Cascades in the freezer.

Centennial will be next...

Cheers!

My garden is for my nanobrewery I am launching in a few months. My friend is a landscape architect and he designed this cool trellis system we made out of bamboo we harvested and cured. The arms raise and lower. Within the garden are blackberries, raspberries, elderberries, and black currants.



Massive, massive first year cascades. They look like second year, I have no idea how they did this.



Trellis system. Inside the squares are the different berries.
