Nuggets are nice, Fuggles are finicky!
The harvest for this year’s hops are finished. We took in over 15 pounds of fresh hops.
After last years rain/mold disaster it was good to have some nice cones to give to the company beer brewers.
The Fuggles variety from last year did not survive. Over half the Nuggets did. We cloned some more in the spring to replace the ones that did not make it. Also tried 3 of the Mt. Hood variety (4″ pots from local nursery) and they did well. All of these were grown in bato buckets on trellis with drip irrigation. Hydroton,with a little coco,was substrate and FloraNova was the nutrient used in the reservoir. Mt. Hood are in the photo.
