Subject: Re: homegrown hops - yield, drying

Since my name came up, I guess that I'll throw in my two cents worth. :-)

My references indicate that in most climates hops will give a good harvest
the second year. My experience seems to support this, for my second year
crop has produced a large number of flowers. My guess is that climate,
soil, etc. will affect this.

While I have your attention, here's a question, How do I determine when
it's time to harvest my hops? I've got some good size flowers (with yellow
resins starting to become visible), and after rubbing one in my hands I
could detect some aroma. Are they about ready?
