Hopline Sky View

After the hop harvest was completed a few months ago, there were lots of bits of twine remaining on the trellises.
The weather is so changeable these last few weeks. From frozen fog and snow to glorious days like this one, no two days in a row are the same.

Skywatch homepage is here.

What I found at my feet on that walk is here.

i really don't get harvesting, i guess, because i don't understand why twine is up in the sky.

my ancestors would be so displeased.

Sorry, Holly. I fixed the post a bit with a link to a post showing the workers in the hopyard before harvest. The hops grow up the twines from the ground to the top of the trellis. When theya re harvested, some of the twine remains.

I remember the first time we drove through the Yakima Valley and saw hops. We had no idea what they were at first. Now I have some growing up a light pole for decoration!
