HOP YARD

A good friend offered to grow some hops at his place. New rhizomes ordered, cascade rhizomes cut from the back yard, trellis is being put in place. After that, some planting. Lots of planting. If everything goes as planned we'll have thirty rhizomes planted this year with room for more in the future. I keep thinking about how we might harvest all these hops. It is pretty time consuming afterall.

But, I'm getting ahead of myself here. They aren't even planted yet :-)

Good luck with the hops! I am thinking about getting some hop plants for my dad's garden in France to try and bring him back in to the homebrew scene.

Velky Al,

Thanks :-) France eh? Hops growing in French Gardens sounds delightful on a rainy day here in the states.
