Hops Harvest

First, a minor review of Ralph Snart Adventures #1 by at least someone that gets what I'm doing. Scroll about halfway down.

Well, it was hops harvest time again over the weekend. Not much of a harvest, but better than last year. Looking back, I probably pruned back too much and too late and should've trained only two vines up each rope. I only harvested a little over one ounce! This is Nugget, though, a variety that is very high in alphas, so I'll use that mere ounce or so for one whole batch of beer, which is in another two weeks. If you've never smelled fresh hops, it is heavenly.
