Default Anyone Growing hops in Kentucky??

Just looking to see if anyone is having success growing hops in Kentucky. My friend is looking to plant 6 acres, his soil report was good and he is inside the lattitude line. Are there any rizomes left to buy this year, or is it too late?

I'm growing 'em in Kentucky (Cascades and Chinook). They're doing very well.

May I ask what area you are in? How many plants? How many years? what kind of yield?

Thanks,

Eastside

I'm in Louisville. Just growing them for my own use and amusement, really. Very few, in containers, first year. Not expecting much of a harvest being first year plants.

But I can say that they do grow very well here.
