Here is my hops harvest for 2011. What you see is a combination of about 25% Cascade and 75% Nugget hops. It has been 3 years since I originally planted the rhizomes and each year the plants have produced more and more cones. This year I was able to fill a paper grocery bag. Now I am in the process of dehydrating and freezing them. Needless to say, Emily isn’t thrilled with the aroma and lack of freezer space. Looks like I need to get brewing.
Extra special thanks to my awesome Mom Connie for giving me a hand in the process.
