My second year hop plants are doing well in Massachusetts. My mother sent me these pictures, Cascade is the taller plant, Willamette is the shorter plant. Last year I only got about 1 oz of wet (undried) hops from both plants combined. Hopefully this year I'll get a big enough haul to at least get a full batch with them.
In this picture you can see all of the little spiky buds, each (barring infection, bugs, and mistreatment) will turn into one hop cone. I am hoping they will be ready to harvest in a month when I'll be back in Massachusetts for week vacation, but they probably won't be ready until a few weeks after that.
