Rain, Rain, Go Away

Some pictures I took a few hours ago of our hops. This is what happens when you have several inches of rain a day, every day, for a week. Throw in winds strong enough to uproot trees and this is what you get. Luckily the vines themselves are undamaged and the hops are twice as big as last year. But we need the water to drain and drain quickly or else this may be a short season. The forecast is calling for several more inches of rain. Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't come to fruition.
