First year harvest. I am not sure If I did it too soon . From what I read the cones were papery and sprung back when squeezed. Also they were full of lupulin. I plan on putting the whole batch into a American IPA.

The last of the first year hops have been picked and I got a decent harvest. I had five plants grown on a south facing balcony. Here's how they ended up doing:

Nugget in 100L of potting soil: 12oz wet

Centennial in 50L of used potting soil: approximately 30 weak little cones that I didn't bother picking
Mt. Hood in 40L of used potting soil: 4 weak little cones

I used the willamettes and 6oz of wet nuggets in the brown ale recipe from How to Brew. I tried a gravity sample tonight (one week in primary) and it is spicy! I wanted to brew something other than an IPA...The malt is awesome but the hopping is a little weird...I can't tell if it will be drinkable yet

I put the wet cascades in the freezer for next weekend when I'll brew an IPA. I might throw in some of the left over nuggets at bittering.

So yay for homegrown hops! If you have even a tiny southfacing outdoor space, get a big rubbermaid container, some fresh soil and go for it. Nobody I talked to thought I was going to grow anything and I got enough for 2 batches my first year.

I have wood siding on my house, but was considering running the bines up to the overhang of my roof, do you think the moisture from the bines would rot out the wood siding? Should I just invest in building a structure over my beds for them to climb up?

Your siding should be fine.

Just picked my hops, drying 2 lbs. on my new contraption. I think I picked them late, they are pretty dried out on the bines.
