Week and a half or so. Ordered them from Northern Brewer. They send them out directly (from Oregon, IIRC) when they're ready. Since *I'm* not ready for them, they can get here when they want to get here.

I just ordered some today from Freshops with shipping via Priority Mail. I leave town for 10 days in 10 days and with Priority Mail, they should be here in time. Well, they should be here in time if they are shipped promptly.

I think I may have screwed myself.

Just noticed that Northern Brewer is completely out... anyone looking to get rhizomes, I'd do it quicky....

I got 3 jumbo Cascade and 3 Centennial from Freshhops.com. I picked up all my materials for my hop garden and will plant them this week. Mine will be a 8'x8' raised bed with a drip irrigation system. I am building a tripod with 20' sections of EMT (1/2" metal conduit) from a design I saw online. I'll post pics when I get R done.

Good for you! A drip system (of course aside from the raised beds) is hands down the best move I made for the garden ever. I have noticed it makes a huge difference in keeping Powdery Mildew at bay.

My hops started sprouting, but three hard freezes in 8 days will probably mean a re-start later.

Evan,

What kind of trellis did you wind up doing? I am in the depths of the same venture. 6 different types of hops, 10 foot verticle trellis, 30 feet of growing space. Shoot me back.

Same as yours, LOL. I have 3 cascade and 3 halertau, lemme see if I can drag up a pic. These are all first year crop and I did get a modest harvest.

And a pic of my son standing next to the others

I now have a proper trellis built for each bed, so they'll have a vertical climb.
They are about 1 and 1/2 feet tall right now.
