Over and Over
Right Now . . . July 2014

HOP to it!

Last year, I planted two little hops plants in my backyard, using an arbor that Tom installed for me.  The hops grew and flourished, but not enough for a harvest or anything.

This year, though, we've got a different story!

Yes.  This year. . . we have HOPS!

(And, really, my whole back garden would be covered with hops if I didn't keep up with my "maintenance."  Because hops want to take over the world -- or, at least, my garden!  They aren't hard to maintain, though.)

We've got a lot of cones forming now.

According to the Michigan State University Extension website, we should expect to harvest our hops sometime in September.

I'll keep you posted on our Hops Progress. . . and, in the meantime, I'm in the market for a food dehydrator!
