dried hops in the oven but this time around it was a very very hot day... well 90f and quite sunny. Left the hops on a cookie tray with a cookie cooling rack holding them down. One day in full hot sun made them quite dry. Did not do a weight before so hard to say how this competes with the oven hops drying method.
Here is the total yeild from one wimpy plant dried and bagged. This is the potted hops plant that had its two main bines broken mid season and nothing new really came up and replaced them.
On a similar note I have added a few more images to my classic hops illustrations post.

Dalton Ghetti does makes carving crayons seem crude... which makes me feel stupid. So I thought I would try to imitate/flatter/plagiarizer what he does. Here is my first attempt at carving a tip of a pencil to make a small abstract sculpture. I call it figure looking over its shoulder. I am also open to suggestions on the best way to photograph things this small.
