This past weekend I picked the last of my hops and prepped the vines for winter. According to the hops stuff I’ve been reading, you cut the hops vines down to about 3″ sticking out of the ground. From there, you just take the vines, cut off the hops, and dry. Simple enough.
Below is a picture of two ounces of Cascade vacuum sealed. I picked up an actual vacuum sealer and I am very glad that I did. It’s awesome! My total harvest was just shy of a pound so not too bad, though I hope that next year is a big year. So far the Cascade hops has been carrying the load with my harvest.
