Default Hoppy Fourth of July, Everyone!

Colorado may be on fire, the air may smell like a camp fire, and this hot & dry year has been lousy for staying cool, but I have never harvested hops this early!

I cut down my Zeus (middle pot), and I think I'll harvest the Willamette (left pot) this weekend or next. I'm very excited about the possibility of a double harvest. If we get an early or late winter this year it will be win-win: late winter means double hops harvest, and early winter means that we might actually have a snowboarding season, unlike last year

That's 18 oz of wet Zeus. Whoo-hoo!
