That's what I'm hoping. Once these bines wither, I'm hoping a few small shoots may come up in that area to replace them. Shame, though, these were 10' already.

Lost 2 Cascades

Ugh, thanks to some heavy storms, I lost 2 Cascade bines (on the same string). We had some high winds, and a portion of my neighbors' patio furniture ended up in my hops garden and crushed the bines...

(2) 2nd Year Cascades & (2) 2nd year Goldings are flying out of the soil already. This past weekend I pruned down all of the really long "early" bines, and I'll be...

First Brewing Casualty

So it took until my 5th batch until I lost a piece of equipment. As many brewers before me, I have broken my racking cane at the bend while trying to remove the siphon tube. :mad:

Anyway, this...

Post-Harvest...What Next?

So yesterday I harvested my first year plants. I didn't get a lot, since they were first years, but ended up with about 7 oz. off the bines. These were all from 2 Cascades. My 2 Goldings didn't...

Was speaking about the swamp cooler. But now that you mention wet t-shirts, I'd say that guy gets a nod as well. :D

Thanks to the T-Shirt Trick Inventor

Normally when I brew I am using an aquarium heater to keep my ferment temperatures up, since my cellar is nice and cool year round. This Summer, however, has been brutal in Pennsylvania and my...

Strange. We have a family of rabbits living under our back porch, right next to the hop garden. They haven't so much as paused to sniff the bines.

My first years have been growing like wildfire for the past few months. I was very excited to see the number of cones starting to pop out. Now, though, I feel like I'm about to lose every single...

Storms. Ugh.

So after surviving several VERY gusty Thunderstorms, my hops finally got beat up pretty good from a storm that blew up last night.

I had a strong piece of wire going across the top of my trellis,...

Well I just did a full panel of tests on the soil around the one showing the most problems.

The pH seemed pretty good at 6.8-7.0. The panel did Potash, and I didn't know if that mattered, but it...
