So I have determined today I an going to pick my hops on my first year Goldings. They are starting a to get a little brown at the ends and they spring right back open when you squish them.
This being my first year I was not sure if I should harvest them all at once or not though. Many of them are much small than others. I do want to get them all at once, since I don't have my one dehydrator and am boring one from my friend. Though I guess its not necessary. Also the bines are starting the wilt and losing leafs so I am not sure how much nutrients the ones I leave would still be getting.
Also I am sure I could find this somewhere but since I am making a post I figure i might as well ask. After everything is harvested do I cut the bines all the way down now or what do I do with them?
Ok thanks, Yeah I cut them down and most of the bines; left a few feet that I could reach with out getting a ladder out again. The rest i put in the composer maybe I'll get planets growing in there next year
