2011 in summary

Despite far too few workers , we knuckled down and did the work needed to get Hops up the ropes and as a result saw a great increase in production on the hops we concentrated on.

Nugget and Cascades were superb, with at least 20 lbs coming off the bines this season. Chinook also produced well with a few lbs.

A number of members brewed beers with only farm hops, all nice Pale Ales. I have dry hopped with cascades twice now and had excellent beers.

We also cleaned out the non producing hops from the back row and have space to plant plenty more cascades next season.
