    My centennial loved life this year more than it ever has - after I ran strings 20' into the air
    - and let it climb rather than stuffing it down along the fence.But, even at that, it doesn't
    produce as...

    Not at all a bad yield, congratulations! Now it's time to brew with them!!! Helpful hint - if
    you can't add extra water to make up for the volume loss you will have due to the leaves
    holding liquid, s...

    BLAM! That's a SWEET harvest for first-year plants, Fuzze! Granted, you are in the hops growing
    mecca, Oregon which probably helps too. We had a MESSED UP growing season this year in
    Minnesota.

    They are screwed into the rim-joist under the flashing. I used some 3/4" ID zinc-plated
    eye-screws. They would pull straight out of the gutter.

    Hey man!The harvest will be wrapped up on Sunday, most likely. It depends on how dried out the
    Chinook are. All of the Cascades are down, 95% of the Centennials are down and about 1/2 of the
    Magnums a...

    I realized I haven't shared this yet. Paul and I did an episode for Chop and Brew - how to grow
    hops at home:[ame=" here is a follow up episode that talks a bit about harvest:[ame="

    Looper - I'm not sure, I have never read that. I didn't document it, but I think that the last
    application of BioBloom was 3-4 weeks ago I hit them about once-a-week when the cones were just
    starting ...

What up Ted,

Did you send me a text last night? I received a text at 10:15 p.m. est, from a number that I didn't recognize. I need to get your cell number programmed into my cell phone. Let me know if it was you. I worked 14 hours yesterday, went home and helped Kelly get the kids to bed, and then went down to the basement to watch the Tiger's game. My wife is burned out with baseball, so she stayed up stairs. She woke me up around 10:00 sound asleep in the recliner and I went to bed. Had a text from someone and wasn't sure if it was you?

What up dude? I'm still down in the Riviera Maya, but have some wifi access in our room. The place we're at is really nice, but the only beer choices at Corona, Modelo, or a couple of different American domestics. Still having a nice time tho. It gonna be hard leaving after a week of being waited on hand and foot constantly. Weather has been 85 and sunny for the first 4 days, but today was sorta shitty. Rained most of the day, so we just sat at the lobby bar drinking most of the day with a couple of other couples. The buffers and gourmet restaurants are kicking my ass, I'm going to be coming home 10 lbs heavier. Oh well, its a tough life, but somebody has to do it. Can't wait to get home, brew a couple of batches, and finish up my grain mill project. Hope all is well my man!
