    If the plants were infected when you sprayed them but you were able to put the disease in check
    prior to it producing a bunch of spores, those stunted sidearms most likely won't be the cause
    of any mo...

    Being proactive when it comes to disease management is number one on the list and will help
    allow you to sleep a little better, ha! I was in your situation a few years back and things
    basically were b...

    Yeah, red raspberries, it was really strange trying to decide what it was but it finally hit
    me. Immature plants can do funny things- growth wise, so I hope the oil package continues to
    develop along ...

    No idea. I just hope it's not the one that had the raspberry aroma from last year, will have to
    take some seeds if that's the case.

    And here is a close up of the little mutant with the strange, elongated leaves. I thought she
    might outgrow this, but it seem to be permanent! I'm excited to see where this goes.Speaking of
    mutants, I...

    If you take those 'bushes' and cut back all but one central leader you'll at least be able to
    determine what sex they'll be. Actually, it's still early enough that you'll probably have a
    decent amount...

  • Posted in thread: Crap! I think I have males in my hopyard...now what? on 07-16-2016 at 06:47 AM
    Yeah, they make the girls have seeds. The new plants that come from the seeds have some of each
    of their parents genes and every last one that sprouts is at least a little different from each
    other. I...

    Actually, you don't have to kill them to prevent pollination from taking place. Just cut the
    vines at the base of the crown and they most likely won't have time to regrow to make more
    mature pollen. K...

  • Posted in thread: Are hops a source of pollen for bees on 07-15-2016 at 03:52 AM
    I have two additional male plants this year so I was paying a little closer attention to them
    recently and happened to notice quite a few bees working the flowers. They tended to hover more
    like a swe...

  • Posted in thread: Scalable idea for cutting back roots at small scale? on 06-24-2016 at 09:07 PM
    I normally just dig a trench around the crown and cut back t he rhizomes with an old pair of
    pruners. Some of the smaller farms are making their own tractor mounted versions of something
    like this: ...
