Harvesting Hops


Over the next month in Oregon, the Hops Fields will be harvested!


The Hops plant is a climbing vine.  Some fields have a single plant per strand of string.  The picture above shows one large plant with strings  on either side for the plant to grow.


This is how the vines of the Hops plant climb and grow around the cord. The vine is thick and is actually pretty strong.


The light green flower is harvested for making beer.


The variety of agriculture grown in the Willamette Valley where I live is fascinating to me.


The Hops Fields have an inviting allure all of their own to them.

Happy Tuesday!  Hope it’s a good one for you!
