    My cascade, from September till last week. At one stage there you can see some bug got to them and I thought they were gone for a while, we went on holidays, came back and they had fought back by themselves.

    Jumbo sleeping bag style drying rack. Made from a swisse voile "cocoon". I give it a few bops each time I go out for a beer (so only 5 or 20 times a night, right), for two or three days until they feel dry.

    I trialed some last year and sold some through YOB when he was running the Hop Dealz site. I can sell some this year. PM me if interested, I'll be doing 250g bags this year.

    Just picked 1kg from a 2.4m section of first year bines, still more to pick in that section. I'm really surprised.

    Side question, I want to build the soil 15-30cm above the current level of the crowns to build a garden bed in that section of the yard.

    Will this affect the bines in subsequent years, should I leave the crowns at the lower level they're at when backfilling the soil? Should i dig them up and replant them at the new level of the soil?

    I'll be using organic topsoil in the pH 6.5 range

    Do the noble and noble-esque hops like Mt Hood just not have that aroma of the American C varieties?
    I have this Mt Hood that looks ready, but doesn't really have much aroma with the exception of some subtle floral notes.
    Is it ready or should I wait a few days longer?
