Based on your water's alkalinity your mash pH, and thus boil pH, are probably a bit high. A higher than optimal boil pH is said to cause more of a harsher bitterness as well as better hop...

I doubt you'd find any appreciable hops on the vine in the north east, this time of year. I certainly don't have any cones, but I'm up in central VT. Maybe someone from Connecticut?

The end of June has held pretty true for me. But, it's your first year anyways, so I'd focus on keeping them healthy. If you were going to get cones the first year it wouldn't have been many.
