If it's like fiddleheads (fern shoots) cooking them makes them oh-so-tasty.

My Cascades are just starting to poke out of the ground here, about 70 miles south of the Georgia border.

Well, isn't Mother Nature dictating that his hops grow now and by putting the pots somewhere cold to slow them down you're altering that?

Mine are close to a ft. already. I noticed them a couple weeks ago. They do need replanted though. Glad to see others are already seeing some growth.

What I was getting at is that if they were planted in the ground, they most likely wouldn't have sprouted so early due to the earth being cooler than the area where his hops were. The way my mind works it's best if I can keep things as simple as possible without adding additional factors to get in the way. The pots, the garage . . . ?? I like to dig a hole, stick the plant in and see what happens. If it lives, it can stay and I'll toast to it. If it dies - well, I know it wasn't meant to be and I'll toast to that also!
