Hop Yard Update: May 24th Edition


All ten plants are approaching the 12″ mark, and they’ve all successfully found (or been lead to) their climbing twine.

Since we’re getting into hotter, drier days here in upstate NY, I’ve upped their drip irrigation to 60 minutes,  every twelve hours. They also got their first dusting of solid organic fertilizer this week.

Big things await! I’m feeling very good about this test yard – I’ve been considering at great length how to leverage the Internet of Things at a large scale for craft agriculture. Lots and lots to consider here.
