Thanks! I might not brew the best of beers, but I can grow things lol. A lot of soil prep work paid off, and the rhyzomes were very quality. It also helps that we have had a pile of rain in June and continuing that way into July here in Ohio. I think we had a five week span last year without rain.

I'm hoping to get enough for one Tim (IPA) this year. Mine are first year and about 8' tall now. But I'm at 1800' and a full month behind everyone in growing season

Yeah, I was hoping to get enough from my second year centennials to do a single hopped IPA, but it looks like a may get some sort of yield from the first year hops too.

Looks great.  Next spring you'll have to plant your barley.
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!

Great job on those hops.  I'm envious .  I think a wet-hopped Tim with the Centennial,Cascade, and Zeus sounds pretty killer to me.

Thanks Jon...I just brewed a 4 C Tim not long ago with pellets. It has found its way into my top 5 brews. Maybe number 2. It was a 10 gallon batch. 1/2 oz of each Cent, Cascade, Columbus, and Chinook at FW, an oz of Chinook and Columbus at 60 minute, an oz of Cent and Cascade at 30, and ounce of all 4 at flame out, and dry hopped each carboy with an ounce of each. If I yield enough, this year, I may try and brew a fresh hopped 4 C's.

Oh yeah, overlooked the Chinook.  That definitely needs to be in there.  Need to try my hand @ growing again after seeing those pics.

I pre ordered the rhizomes (rooted cuttings) from the thyme garden in October. Very nice quality. They ship on a first come first serve basis so I'm sure I got some of the best cuttings.

I culled my first hop harvest. It was maybe fifteen cones. Definitely not enough for a Tim.

I can't be happier with my first harvest from my first year Chinook! There's still some left maturing on the bine. I also got a handful of Magnum and Willamette today too. There are a ton on the Columbus and Nugget plants, but they're a couple weeks away.
