    The isolation upside is that I was able to get my hop containers moved down from the deck to the ground. I strung the twine to the deck rail. I will set up the sprinklers tomorrow. This is their third year, so I am optimistic about a good crop. Hops April 2020 1.jpg Hops April 2020 2.jpg Hops April 2020 3.jpg

    Color coded pots: Terra Cotta are Cascade, light green are Centennial, Black are Styrian Golding, and dark green are Willemette. The last two years we fed them Miracle Grow, great the first year, then not so much the second year. This year I am giving them 13 13 13.

    Looks awesome.

    I've got some 2020 Saaz and EKG waiting for me on the other side of the lockdown. Planted them at a mates farm last year and they were harvested over the last few weeks, just after they decided to quarantine themselves. Gives me a bit more time to work out how to put a hopback into my system.

    Lucky they only brew kombucha and kefir. Though she is talking about dry hopped kombucha.

    I posted this in the how are all your hops doing thread, but will post here as well. I actually have no idea what variety this plant is, when I harvest later this year I will have to brew a Mystery SMASH!

    My wife reported that they are just starting to kick into gear, they are flowering and they are at the point where you can watch them climb! Unfortunately, I am out of town with work through next Tuesday. Photos next week...

    Mine are coming on, but nothing that looks like fruit yet. I'm also planning a change to the setup for next year to allow more room for the bines to grow and maybe get a couple of the smaller Korsta varietals to grow up sisal on either side of the porch.
