I think I'll be selectively harvesting some hops soon. Some of the Cascades hops are full grown, but I think I have more flowers than hops at this time. The Centennial and Goldings are lagging. It seems a little earlier than previous years in Chicagoland. At the risk of jinxing myself, I haven't seen any white flies on my hops ... yet. This is the first year that I culled bines but I'm not sure that culling is connected to a possibly earlier harvest and lack of white flies.Yeah, Chicagoland is definitely ahead of schedule this year. Other than my first year plants, everything has lots of full size cones. They can't be too far from harvest. There was lots of early summer rain. And no Japanese Beetles yet either. I hate those bastards.
