My Hop Vines

I planted some hop rhizomes (root stocks) last spring and hope to plant some more this year. Currently have one vine each of Tettnang, Cascade and Willamette. I planted a little late so they stayed slightly small. Hopefully they should start coming up again in a month or so. I got about half an ounce of fine Cascades off of this vine, and I'm drinking the pale ale they were used to dry hop right now! See the yellow lupulin glands which contain the resins and oils we use to flavor beer.
