Way to go girl! Hi-5's to Pilotdane! That is cool, at least you know it can be done now, so, how many cones are on your other plants? I have vaccum sealed 24 oz. of dried hops so far, and the cascade is loading up again, sometime this week I will be picking hops again woo woo! Later Gator.

Nothing harvested yet but one cascade is very heavy with cones. I think some of the ones near the top will be ready in a week or so. It's hard to say since I'm new to the hops growing thing but I hope I'll know when I see it. The cones still feel moist and don't smell like hops so I know it will be a bit longer.

Ask and you shall receive.

Here is the cascade I started from a cutting this spring (off a 1st year bine). On it's way to the hops garden since it has outgrown it's bamboo stake.



And yes we have burrs.



Since it outgrew the stake that was way too tall and "it will never get that tall this season" I'm moved it to the hops garden to take the place of a sterling that did not survive.

The white columns are 8ft. tall.



The two on the left are cascade. #3 is the cascade in a pot I stared from a cutting. Then a sterling and magnum and nugget.

Nice pictures. I am looking forward to growing some hops this year as well. This will be my first year. I intend to buy a rhizomes and then root the bines that we are suppose to cut off and discard.

I just wish I could find a supplier that would send rhizomes earlier. I read that hops can be grown earlier in Southern California than in other locations.

I'd be interested in an update on any 2-4 year cuttings. Has any one compared the root structure of a cutting vs. a rhizome after 3 years?

Now, if we only didn't get another 16" of snow yesterday.....

When grown on heavy clay soils, after about 2 years you can't tell the difference. There may possibly be a difference in well drained soils but I doubt if it would be very noticeable. Hop On!!
