Hops Update - June 23

A quick (and late) update with a few pictures. The plants are still growing strong and the cascades are putting on more cones. They have also started to send out horizontal shoots which I hope will fill up with even more cones! The goldings is looking strong for its second year and I hope that I will be able to get some cones from it this year. The centennials have started to put on cones as well, although they are several weeks behind the cascades.

Love the photos. I've been looking around for good advice on growing hops. I'm also in my second year in Akron, OH. I didn't get any cones last year, so I'm pretty excited about a harvest this year. It's been encouraging to look through your blog and follow the process. Keep it up!
