So just a quick update. The new trellis works great. The hops are easy to maintain and had I put more effort into eliminating bugs and powdery mold, our crop would have been stunning. Unfortunately my time with work and SCA projects left me with a rather low crop return this year. Plans are in the works to fill the hop garden with more
horse shit nutrients and weed all the landscaping ivy away so that next years crop will be more bountiful. I’ve already used half the hops on my brown ale made this weekend.
