Ten days ago, I went out to the garden and took some photos of all my hop binds, with the intention of doing a quick blog about how Spring had arrived. Fast forward to today and I noticed that the hop binds have gone a bit mental with the recent warm sunny weather. The photo on the left is ten days ago, the one on the right, this morning, quite a difference!
I still haven’t used any of the hops I grew last year, they’re still in bags, deep in my mother-in-laws chest freezer. I should really plan a couple of brews to use them up, especially the ones I froze without drying. More pressingly though, I need to rig some sort of support system for these, so that they won’t collapse, the bamboo canes I used last year, weren’t anywhere near strong enough.
