Golden Hops Vine - May 2014
We now have three hops vines in our side yard. The one pictured here is - by far - the biggest and was planted back in 2012. It is a Golden variety. Over on the far right of this photo, you can see another trellis'd vine - that's a Cascade variety, one of the other two we have growing.
Last year, I was pretty bummed out that we didn't get any fruit off the Golden, but I've committed to staying on top of the plant with water and care, so I'm hopeful I'll be able to turn over to my brother-in-laws a bucket full of green hops come this fall.
