How to Harvest Hops…

A few months ago I planted 20 hop rhizomes of Cascade in some pots and sprouted them (you can watch that video here). Then I built a hop trellis for our hop yard, tilled the earth, and planted my hops in the ground (video here). It was very challenging to grow hops in Georgia. The climate is substantially¬†hotter than where hops are normally grown. Being honest… it was not easy. There were several challenges to face, but it was fun learning how to solve each problem.

Harvesting the hops was actually the easiest part of the hop growing process. Check out the video on how to harvest hops below for detailed instructions. We got a decent crop this year for the first time. Hopefully, next year will be even better.
