The hops are dry

I weighed them today and determined that my total harvest for this year is a whopping 10 oz. of dried hops.  Not bad considering the past 5 years have yielded zero ounces.  I expect my vines to be twice the volume next year so I'll get a pound if I'm lucky.  They took about three hours to pick and clean out the leaves.  I don't have any plans to be a hops farmer, but it is nice saying I am making beer with my own home-grown hops.

Next is to grow 25 pounds of barley and malt it!
