Hops flowers!

Stopped by the hops tower today and saw some of the first hops flowers showing up!

I don't think they've been there for very long, but I'm glad some showed up. After all the growing the vines have been doing, I was starting to wonder if any were going to show up. Did a bit of research a couple weeks ago and learned that there are male and female vines, and only the female vines produce the hops flowers/cones.

I'll watch these grow and see what they turn into.
