[Hops + Update = Hopsdate]

When I started researching about growing hops I read a lot of forums that said it is important to keep my expectations low for your first year harvest.  Most of them mentioned that in the first year the hops are more  interested in growing tall than creating cones.  Any cones created by harvesting time should be thought of as a bonus.  Well, my Director of  Hops Growing (my mom) sent me a picture today and while I will continue to keep my expectations in check I can’t help but get a little tickle looking at the image below.

This is just a small section of the trellis and apparently there are many many cones developing.  I’ll be heading down to inspect my plants this weekend so I should have some additional images soon.
