Our Secret Crop of Hops

One of our friends makes the best beer and shared with us some of his hops. We planted these guys next to the wood pile in the spring and have been watching them grow!

Howard created an extension arm with some lumber and some string to encourage the vines to grow high and not all over the wood pile.

We didn’t think we’d have actual hops the first year but to our surprise we have a ton!

Now, if only I could reach these to see if they are ready for the harvest!

Do we plan to make beer? No, not at this time. I’ve learned you can freeze the hops and that’s what we’ll do for our beer making friend!
