After picking 5.6 oz of wet Sunbeam hops, I checked the forum for a running tally of hops harvested this year. Not finding one, I figured I would start one. After drying I netted just over an ounce. I can't be the only one getting some harvesting in, so lets tally for the dried hops collected in oz. for 2013.

1.1 oz Sunbeam

I'm afraid mine won't be ready until September, with the late growing season up here.

Yeah, I am a month away from any substantial harvest......like grapes you don't want to harvest until they have peaked.

Must be lucky. Mine all had brown tips and we're dry like paper with tons of yellow lupulin inside. My Willamette and Nugget are just throwing some spurs now :-D

No, second year. I go them from a friend who was moving. I have them potted this year because I couldn't get a raised bed this year. I'll have them in the ground next spring.

Still at 1.1 oz hahah

One month, problem is, I am not sure whether my hops are Cascades or Chinooks, lost the labels. I guess I'll buy some to compare and figure out which survived.
