Can anyone speak on the growing season so far in the pacific northwest? I've searched around a little for an update, but haven't found any info. I see a mini heatwave is hitting over the weekend, with cooler temperatures next week. I know that we have a few home-growers on here, just wondering how the big farms are making out so far.

Hopefully the eastern euro. season is doing well

So far, the hop farms are nominal. I doubt that there will be a larger than normal crop, but it should be average.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

The hop ranches here in Washington got a late start do to odd weather (we had snow fall in early june) but the water fall and sun have been very good the last 3 weeks, I am sure that they are off to a banner start, even though it is a late one

Just watching the commercial hop fields near my house, I'm guessing it'll be an average crop, but I have seen a few new fields put in place. Markets oscillate, so I think we'll be okay.

We had a really long, cool spring so the weather's not been the best, but it's better than it could be.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
