My second year hops are doing very well this year even after a very harsh winter. Like last year, we've had a lot of rain in northeast Ohio in April, May, June, and into July. From left to right I have Magnum, Nugget, Zeus, Chinook, Cascade, two Centennials (third year), Golding, Willamette, Mt. Hood, and Perle. The Chinook plant is growing the most obnoxiously. It was over the roof, but it's full of cones and has fallen down some. I had the most cones on the Zeus last year, but it's not as strong this year. Something dug the mulch up around it at some point during the winter. But everything is looking pretty good!
