Default Massachusetts - Hop Growing

Has anyone that lives in Massachusetts grown hops? I was curious to know what luck they had and how they went about it (time frames).

What 3 varieties did you plant? How recently did you plan them?

I planted 1 cascade, 1 golding and 1 williamette on the 17th (last saturday) I've been trying to keep them well watered but its been hard since I don't live where they are planted.

Its been almost a week and no ground has been broker, I'll keep you updated.

I live in Hampden MA and grow, Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook hops. I have a friend in town that is growing, Cascade and Hallertauer hops. No problem growing hops in Massachusetts.

I live in SE MA (South Coast) and have mostly Cascade - more than I could possibly use. I have wet hopped, dry hopped, etc. Later I planted Willamette, Kent Golding, Hallertauer and Sterling.

I'm in Watertown, and I've got first year Nugget, Cascade, and Goldings. The nugget and cascade are ~10ft, but the goldings is only 5-6ft. I haven't seen any hop cones yet, but I'm crossing my fingers!

I live in Boston and I planted 1 chinook, 1 cascade and 1 williamette and the only one that grew was the williamette. Its about 8 feet tall and going strong. The others must have been duds or it was something I did.
