Default Just picked the first batch of Chinook

First year Chinook... I picked about a third of them (2 oz wet). So I guess I'll end up with maybe 1.5 oz dried once they're all picked.

Wasn't expecting much of anything first year, but this is a usable amount. Not bad for one first year plant, I think.

Color's a bit washed out in the first pic...

Yeah thats cool man, how big did your plant get? just wondering to give me an Idea of my harvest. I've got 11 plants of four different variety, and am hopping to get enough so I can fill a keg with my home grown.

The Chinook plant got to about 25 feet. I had an 8 foot pole with an eye bolt on top with the twine running through it. When the plant would get to the top of the pole, I'd let out a couple more feet of twine. Ended up with a few coils of hops bine... Only the top half or so actually produced cones.
