Default Roughly 400!

So I received my order today from Fresh Hops of 252 rhizomes. 6 different varietals. I also received my organic hop crowns(3 years old) of some hard to find hops on Sat. We are supporting our brewing needs and will be putting whole cones out to market in a couple years. Total planting will be around 400 when all is said and done. A lot of work is to come in the next few weeks. These will all grow on a low trellis system of 12'. I will have a total of 9 diff varieties and half of all my hops will produce this year. Wish us luck and good luck to all that plant theirs! Now....where's that shovel ?

Holy crap, are you growing an entire farm of hops?!?

Seriously though, good luck. I humbly bow to your superior hoppyness.

How much land do you have set aside for 400 hops growths?
