    This will be year 3 for my hops, I have 6 different varieties and only 3 types do well in central Ohio. Last year I harvested about 5.5# from my Chinook and Cascade, this year the harvest is about 1/4 what it was last year. Different growing approach this year, picked 3 of the best looking bines and and trained them up the rope and tried to keep the runners trimmed back. The weather was much wetter this year also. just wanted see if there was anyone else with similar issues.

    I live in Beavercreek, south of you a bit. I'm not a hops grower. I'm a pellet buyer!
