Hops Hopping and Popcorn Popping

2016-6-18 Hops (1)Last week we drove past many hops fields.  The little vines are growing up their twine trellises.  Every time we pass, they have grown a few more feet.2016-6-18 Hops (3)Hops_Vines

Here’s some info I posted about hops last year:  https://yakimamission.wordpress.com/2015/08/31/learn-about-the-hop-industry-in-yakima-valley/?iframe=true&theme_preview=true

The videos are pretty fascinating to watch.  Yakima Valley is one of the best hop-producing areas in the World!

Yesterday we drove past this beautiful apricot orchard.  The popcorn popping on the apricot tree has yielded this harvest!  Fruit stands are advertising “COTS” for sale.  They are delicious!2016-6-23 Apricots (2)2016-6-23 Apricots (4)2016-6-23 Apricots (5)2016-6-23 Apricots (9)2016-6-23 Apricots (14)2016-6-23 Apricots (12)2016-6-23 Apricots (16)2016-6-23 Apricots (20)
