I suppose I should clarify some things...for one, I'm not making fun of his Gal, God knows I've had a few "winners" in my life. I feel I should mention that the "brew goddess" in my house barely puts up with all my "beer stuff" (Of course I'm not as bad off as Slnies who gets his wife a hotel room every time he brews at home - which is part of the reason he brews at my place)

I just tend to laugh at extremes from time to time...no harm intended.

Here is what I am doing for this year, fairly cheap and easy to build.

There was the same question asked in the letters column of this month's BYO, they give some pretty good advice.

It looks like half barrel is a good idea. Large enough for good root growth but I bet they are MF to move.

Here's some ideas.

I went to Wally World and bought a couple 20 gallon Rubbermaid tubs (the kind you can chill kegs in) for $6 apiece and drilled a few large holes in the bottoms. Then I went and bought a bunch of stuff from Lowe's and mimicked Talleymonster's PVC trellis system. Pipes, pots, dirt filler stuff for 2 pots was about $35 for everything total. It's about 10 feet up. I plan on training 2 bines up 2 different ropes and then once they reach the top I'm gonna train them down 2 ropes on the other side. Best part is the tubs have handles so if I wanna adjust em its really easy.

I just got done putting my rhizomes in pots. One each of Willamette, Sterling, Cascade and Mt. Hood. I plan on getting them off to a decent start in the pots while I get the yard ready. I have to dethatch and till the the heck out of it first. Plus, the snow just finally melted off of the ground so it's still frozen just below the surface. I figure I have at least two weeks before I can start working the soil and another two after that to get the trellis and beds ready.

Feels good to get them in some soil though.

I'll try to get something more when I actually have a chance to finish more than one pot and get my rhizomes planted. I'm going to try to get them done on Sunday.
