Finally, a week of summertime like temperatures. That's all the hops needed to really take off. We have been struggling to keep the things pruned back at this point. Two days ago we had the first signs of flowering. Take a look at the pictures to see our little buds. The vines have reached the top and are so heavy that they are pulling down our guide wire and therefore the poles. No harm though. We don't care if it looks pretty, as long as those beautiful little hops are growing we are happy. Can't wait to get our first harvest in. I can smell that delicious lupulin already. CHEERS!
