I do not see them on the leaves or hops only on the bines. So maybe they are eating other bugs. I do have a few lady bugs on the plants, but I did see the white flies for the first time today. Time to get some organocide.

Been awhile since I posted on hops. Have been busy and really not too much to show. Second round of cones coming along good and had to repot hop cuttings because they outgrew small pots and were getting root bound. ---Mark F.---

maf58d,
I only have one set of bines growing, centennial. I am letting all bines grow this year to establish a strong root base. I have a few that are wanting to run on the ground. Do you think they will root if I put some dirt on them a foot away from the original hill?

tdbc2011, Do your ground runners start off of the main bine above ground, or below ground from the crown. If it is a rooted runner from the crown, it is ready to snip and pot. If is from the bine above ground, I am pretty sure you can root it by covering a section with dirt. You could also put some rooting hormone on if you have some, and virtually assure it. ---Mark F.---

Finally picked some more cascade. Has rained hard every day this week , putting me off till late this evening, picking till it was too dark to see. Got most off first plant, but some still left on it. Will finish it and pick second plant when these pulled today are dried. Picture of plant shows just a small part of what is on there, most are hidden by the leaves. ---Mark F.---

Mark, that looks awesome! I am a new homebrewer that is looking into growing my own hops for next year. Any suggestions for someone starting from scratch?

Hey jmuff, good to hear from you. A lot of odds and ends are all through this post on tips I think help. Cascade are the best to grow, and taste great in many beers from APAs to wheats to lagers. Pick a spot that gets plenty of sun, drains well, is easy to tote water to, and give them something sturdy to climb. If you live close I can show you some of the things I use and do. ---Mark F.---

I don't think I am going to get any cones this year (first year). My Cascade which is doing the best of the three is around 15', and has a few side arms of 3-4". I have a feeling it is too little too late though.

I'm sure they will take off like crazy next year though.
