What varieties were you growing? If you still want to try, the C hops might be your best bet. I grew hops in my back yard in Omaha, not too far north of you. My Chinooks and Centennials grew like wild. They were up the lines to my deck and spilling out onto the deck, and completely covered the chickenwire around the hops garden that was supposed to have kept out the dogs. Northern Brewer did fairly well, as did Goldings, to my surprise. Nuggets did okay, but were in the shade, and disadvantaged. Willamette, Mt Hood, Perle, and Glacier were much less robust. I don't like Cascade, but understand that they grow even in Texas.
