Rock On!!!

The Little Girls have been put to Bed!!!! Finally!!

My Rhizomes from DIY showed up Friday...a little dissapointed on the shipping quality and the condition of my Cascade Rhizome. The Hallertau looks killer...you'll see...

The hallertau looks great I must say...little root ball and all!

The DIY ones came all cramed into a tiny package...seemed like the Cascade was a little damaged...we'll see what happens.

Grow babie...grow!!

Don't worry about the Cascade's condition. It is a vigorous variety. My Cascades was the only bine that had enough flowers the first year to bother harvesting. The second year, it out-produced the other 7 by quite a margin. Year 3 & I have some shoots coming out of last year's bines and about 25 coming out of the ground.
