Posted a few pics of this weekends Cascade hop harvest. Not sure the best way to link to my gallery but here goes an attempt. A neighbor grew them and I harvested them. Very exciting as this was my first time.

Interesting the impact of warmer Spring weather. It's just starting to stay above 50F at night and most hop plants around here haven't even hit the top of the trellises.

Just for future reference, it is possible to pick early hops and then get a second harvest.

I am about to harvest cascade as well... to get a second harvest, would you cut the bines, or just pick the cones?

I'll bet you get some great crops in Oregon.

Unfortunately, I am in the coastal range and it tends to be too cold at night for good growth. It was 38F this morning. The valley runs 5-10F warmer and that's where the hop farms are located. The weather guessers are saying hot for the next week and I hope my plants take advantage.
