From under the trellis. Man they sure do give some great shade. To bad they gotta go!


Goldings


Northern Brewer which were picked this afternoon. I'll get maybe 2 ounces after drying


Brewers Gold tied in with a grape. Thats gonna suck to harvest


The Cascade harvest!!!


After drying 20.25 oz. not bad for a second year plant.

At the base in pots are a Fuggle, Galena and Mt Hood waiting for the ground next season.
Sorry don't know how to make the images bigger

Nicely done! All your plants are grown in pots? What size pots do you use?

The four posts have openings in the patio with drip that they're planted in. The pots contain first year Fuggle, Galena and Mt Hood, which will be moved next season to their new location.

this gives me hope that I will actually get a harvest next year when my potted hops are in their second year!

I took the contents of the whole pot and buried it (not including the pot) and was careful not to break it up.
