Backyard Hop Vines Grown Organically 1st Year
Hey there everybody how's it goingé It's Danfrom plantabundance . I just wanted to give you guys a quick update onmy first year hop vines I got growing here in the urban backyard food forest. The hop,known by it's botanical name, 'Humulus lupulus', is a hardy perennial plant which producesannual vines that can grow upwards of 25 ft. in a single season. Under preferable growingconditions similar to those of grapes, you can expect to harvest anywhere from 12 to2 lbs. of dried flowers per plant. The hop varieties that I'm growing here are; 'Nugget','Chinook', 'Willamette' 'Cascade'. they're all midseason varieties that should be attheir peak readiness between August and September.
I ordered these hop rhizomes on a presalefrom TymeGarden and my order arrived right on time in early spring ready for plantingso I would highly recommend that you give them a try if your looking to grow some hops.So this year I will be drying and storing these hops to be used in some future homebrewrecipes and I am really exited about having some nice organic, fresh locally grown hopsto add to my homebrew. so that's the update for today, stay tuned I'll be making anothertutorial shortly showing the harvest of these guys and how I go about drying them out andgetting them ready for storage. Alright everybody, I hope your having a great day planting abundancein your life. I'll be talking to you soon.
Growing Hops At Home First hop flowers and the next 2 years tutorial 4
here's the first year's hop flowers not a bad little crop, they seem quite small and didn't feel ready to harvest so I left them a little longer and before I knew it my drop had gone brown and was of little use no hardship, I wasn't expecting a usefulharvest the first year anyway training the hop binds up gardentwine wasn't hugely successful
birds kept picking at the garden twineand a few times they broke and had to be repaired at the end of the year the hops were cut down to groundlevel after the less than successful use ofgarden twine, I decided to go for galvanized wire to train the hops fanning the wire out from the base of thehop plant and securing it to the pergola
the second season's shoots should climb well, up the new supportsystem and be resistant to unwanted avian attention already the growth is more vigorous than inthe first year the young flowers developing nicely herein August far more numerous than in the first year
now, these are looking much more like it; feeling and sounding nearer to what I would expect, but perhaps a little further to go before harvesting but yet again: through pressures of work I took my eye off the ball and before I knew it the flowers were past it and so
we begin another year the thir year's new shoots just emerging Here's to a better year at work and in the garden.
