I just pulled some of the surrounding mulch over them. I'm honestly not too worried. Hops are tough plants.

Would have been nice if they canceled it before midnight, I was long gone by 3a.

Killed me, I lost 70-100 dug rhizomes in the pole barn! The hops gods will not be happy.

Last night was a lil sketchy as well. I covered just in case. Watered and ready for near 80 degree temps today! Think we've seen the last cold spell?
