Just want to plug the new home brew store in Lafayette, Colorado. The owner, George, is a nice
guy with a good inventory, especially for just opening up. I got tired of one of the other
stores in the ...

I'll cut back anything near the ground, and train or trim anything that is trying to encroach
on neighboring plants (different variety), but other than that I let the side arms do what the
want. Of co...

I'll second what Brent said, but also don't stress over what you do too much. They are pretty
hearty plants.Semi off topic example: Hi Brent! Here's a picture of the Centennial you gave me
a few years...

I thought I'd bump this in case anyone else might want some hops right now. Turbosnail came and
got some, I hope they are doing alright in his yard. Until I can convince any more of my
friends that th...
Posted in thread: Another bug post on 06-18-2010 at 02:45 PM
I have a fair bit of those bugs on my hops, too. The good news is I also have lady bugs all
