Dirty Hops?

My place is pretty dusty, do you guys hose off your plants before harvesting, or wash the cones after picking?

I guess you should hose them off. I dont really know. I just pick them and either use them wet or dry them out and they go in the freezer.

Only harvested once so far and it was after a rain. I'd think spraying them off while on the bine would be easiest to do and to dry.
