Hop harvest

The kids and I picked my 2nd-year hops today. I joked that they should go pick the hops for me but they wanted to and loved it, especially climbing on the ladder and talking about how much beer they’re gonna make.


One of the vines did better than the others… left to right, Chinook, Cascade, Centennial and Columbus:


We watched “Muppets Most Wanted” after dinner and Havana said she liked picking hops more than the movie. And she asked if we could pick hops every year. Weird; you never know what they’ll like.
