They are going wild !!!Discovered some mites today and am working on solving the problem with predatory mites and maybe some neem oil.Mostly on the Chinooks.Have lots of lady bugs,Mantices and we got some rain today.So just have to get on it in the AM. Don't forget the Hop Class and Brew School is just around the corner and filling up fast. Colorado Organic Hops It will be a great informative time.Cheers Glen

Nice cones Glen, wish mine were that big. My chinooks are going wild, about 11 feet tall and small cones forming, the cascades are doing well also at about 6ft tall. I heard Newbelgium is going to use your hops on a special release beer soon, is that true, what is it going to be?

Looks great! My Chinook and Cascades are also doing very well. All, I would estimate, over 25 feet. Lots of burrs on all, no cones yet.

My mistake Glen I was talking about Odell! I think I got new belgium from watching the video a while ago. So do you know what Odell's gonna do or do they just keep that a secret? I'm not sure where I read it but I thought something was coming out in fall with your hops being used?
