The hops are starting to turn a little yellowish/brownish, and the lupulin is smelling nice and pungent. That means it’s about time to harvest the hops! The seemed to have ripened earlier this year, probably because it was so wet and rainy in June, then so hot and dry in July. Anyway, here’s a few pictures of all the hop vines.
Here’s the Cascade hops.
Here’s the Nugget.
Additional picture of the Columbus hops.
The Golding were pretty much ruined by the Japanese beetles, and the Centennial are two small and don’t have enough cones to harvest this year. And as I mentioned previously, the Galena died near the end of spring.
