A Hop Field
This picture, taken earlier in the season, shows the hops before the vines have attained fall maturity. They are grown on high poles, with supporting wires or cords, so that the vines may have ample opportunity for growth without interfering with one another. Hop-growing involves work, but the crop is highly profitable.
