I've got cones!
I had a pleasant surprise when we got home from our annual vacation in Myrtle Beach - Hop Cones! My cascades have grown up the strings about 18 to 20 feet and now they are dropping cones. Ideally I'll get a pound or so of cascades and a few ounces from the Perle, Fuggle and Nugget, but so far no burrs on the other varieties.
Here's a picture of my ghetto hopyard:
From left to right Nugget, Perle, Centenial, a bunch of cascade strings and the two on the right are Fuggle.
