    From back in the lawn care days, it's best to know the life cycle of what you're trying to
    control as at certain points they tend to be more susceptible and that's when you achieve your
    best control: ...

    Like you said, it's hard to tell from that distance but I'm going to say you're just fine. Once
    the cones begin to form, the plants seem to pull nourishment from where ever they can to feed
    them. This...

    Check here: There's lots of growers in your region as Madison Co. was pretty much where the
    US hop industry began. One of the biggest problems facing growers in our part of the country is
    the higher...

  • Posted in thread: Hop Seeds? on 07-25-2015 at 04:31 AM
    Those seeds sure can grow into new plants. My first one came up in my compost back in the mid
    90's and is now donating her seeds to a breeding program up in Michigan at Great Lakes Hops.
    I've used who...

    Here's another one up in MI. The timing might be such that you'll get to see some of the early
    varieties ready for harvest!

  • Posted in thread: Old Hops? What to do with them on 07-13-2015 at 05:38 PM
    Any ideas on what to do with them? Hop candy came to mind.Why wouldn't you use the BEST hops
    for hop candy? I guess everyone has their priorities. I would use them exclusively for
    bitterness addition...

  • Posted in thread: 1st year grower, bonehead mistake on 07-12-2015 at 07:38 PM
    It's all really variable with first year situations. I've had rhizomes put out tremendous
    growth (20 feet) and others that only do half that. When you see that kind of thing, your
    instinct tells you t...
