We had a good frost this morning. I have yet to harvest my cascades. Any issues?

Your running late on the harvest. I'd say its time to take them.

I was up on Monday night picking my Cascades down in the cities but it never ended up frosting.

We got a good killing frost last week before I picked my hops. Didn't seem to hurt the cones, but the plant is now done for the year, all the leaves blackened off. It was time to pick anyway.

Not a problem. The cones are done growing, ditto the plant. I would pick and dry them as soon as possible, though.
