Harvest weekend here. Pulled a few pounds off some of the ladies - Cents, Zeus and Columbus, Cascade and the Mt Hood.
Man it takes a lot of time to pick, but will be nice this winter to reach into the freezer.
Good year overall; I underestimated the weight of a fully laden plant. The Wind took the Mt Hood's half inch steel rod support and bent it right over. This Zeus only bent a little.
The "oast" smells pretty good and my fingers are still sticky.
Cheers to the homegrown harvest.
