Default First hops harvest

I harvested my first batch of cascade the other day. I got 3/4 lb off one rhizome & I think some hung too long & got too dry. We just had torrential rains & flooding so harvesting was out of the question at that time. Should I keep them or are they too dry? Smell great though....

Thanks!!!

I had this happen a few years ago, was about a week away from harvest and then it rained. When the sun came out it burnt them and looked like yours do now. They did not taste good when I brewed with them so I tossed the rest out. However, that was on my second harvest so it may be that I did not dry them well enough too (some of my 3rd year harvest did not get dried enough and they are no good to dry hop with).
