Starting a yard in sacramento
 
2 Attachment(s)

Just got my plants from Great Lakes Hops out of Michigan. Hopefully get them in the ground today and tomorrow if not they will be potted until I can work some more of the soil on our property.
Starting out with chinook, nugget, and cascade. 20 plants of each. Also starting with cultivated rhizomes. Getting them in during the fall should provide a much better root establishment next year.

I really want to find some California varieties . I know Sacramento used to grow a ton of hops before prohibition. There are a few farms just starting out now. 1-3 acres in the surrounding areas but not like back in the day. If anyone in this area knows of any wild hops in the surrounding foothills I would be extremely interested.
