Now that the bines are on a more stable, and tall, trellis system they seem to be ready to get to the top. We only lost one of the 60 trellised bines to frost that occurred on May 7th - the rest bounced back nicely thanks to the following days warm up. They also survived some intense thunder storms that rolled through earlier this week - just like many of those in Moore, Oklahoma we're all thinking of, the hop bines seem to be made of pretty tough stuff.
|Yes, new rows for more hops! It's gonna be a busy harvest next year...|
|Now we just keep 'em mulched and watered and watch them climb!|
Happy Spring to all, soldier on soldier boys and girls, and relax....have a home brew!
