i'm in floyds knobs! lived in lousiville most of my life though...wherabouts?
we have second year cascade, fuggle and willamette. the willamettes, i've been reading, just don't grow well around here and i agree. the fuggle have a few cones. the cacade are going CRAZY!!! i love it. we also have about twenty more cascades, first year in the ground and 10 first year chinooks. we're not brewers but the new albanian brewing company (where i work) are making a beer with our hops. they made 'wet knobs harvest ale' last year and will do so again this year.
i just discovered this site a few days ago and i'm so glad to know that there are others in this area growing. some people have laughed at us for growing in the valley because of the humidity. we actually think this year that we have to harvest early and look to harvest again in aug/sept.
thanks for the contact!!
