Oh baby, do we have some cone production happening on the centennial hops. I had very low expectations for hop cones this year. But man is the centennial cranking out the cones. To the top 2′ of the centennial vines, there is copious amounts of cone production. As you get closer to the ground you start to get less and less cones. I am definitely going to have enough centennial hops this year for at least a couple of 5 gallon batches of beer. YES!!!
One thing I might change for next year, would be to have the hops growing diagonally to the south instead of vertical. Because if I run a steel cable from the hops to one of the trellis posts in the vegetable garden, it would be close to 30′. More then enough length for the hops to really grow out.
