Dan's Hops - July Update

Dan sent along some photos of the hopyard up around the corner from Hawksbill Cabin.  Over the weekend, he started picking them, and by all accounts this is going to be a banner year.

I'm guessing that these are the Cascade bines, but he has had good luck with some of the other varieties as well, including Fuggles and Columbus.

I tried to grow Willamette hops in Alexandria because Dan's bines looked like they were doing so well.  Mine look good, but no cones - Dan said he has had problems in the past too.

I'll post an update on the plants I have tomorrow.  I'll go ahead and preview that post now - I don't have any cones! lol
