Just a couple mid-season shots of the hopyard and Jake. Currently varieties we're growing this year (expansion is planned): Fuggles, Centennial, Santium, Horizon and a new hybrid from New Mexico (not sure of the lineage as of this posting - gotta get that info...). There's about 150+ plants growing at present. Most are first year rhizomes, and getting established is a 2-3 year journey to productivity. Some of the more "active" hops are starting to flower. Not gonna be a bumper crop but the should be some hops to make some fresh hop beers come harvest.
