The Hops is overly ripe – A shame that we don’t make beer…

The hops in the garden is just for pleasing the eyes. No beer production here – otherwise maybe these delicious fruits would have been harvested already. I am quite amazed that my mother’s Humulus lupulus is blooming this far to the North. After all we’re at 68°26’21” North. In the center of Greenland at the same latitude, the ice sheet is 2,000 meters thick…

Anyway – took a few shots of the hops on a rainy afternoon. Hope you enjoy it!
