I have this huge garden that grows wonderful peppers, melons, and everything else a person would want... except hops.

I live in Idaho, and we are restricted to what hops we can grow... if any. This is really unfair and makes me mad.

I'm looking for someone that could hook me up with a couple rhizomes. I'm willing to pay full price and both shipping costs.

Please let me know if you are interested... and ... psst, don't tell the Idaho authorities

Hm... so in Idaho you can buy the ingredients to brew beer, brew the beer, then drink the beer, but you're restricted on actually GROWING some of the ingredients? I didn't realize hops were in the same category as Cannabis Sativa. Or is there a fear of wild hop plants taking over and supplanting the native, indigenous plants of Idaho?

Never having been to Idaho, this surprised me. Someone please enlighten me....

So if you went to hopsdirect.com and wanted to buy rhizomes they'd deny you eh? Think it's too late to help a fellow member out this year but hook up with us in spring 07.

From the Idaho Statutes ("Hops - Promotion of Industry). Talking about some sort of Agriculture Commission here:

"and to impose, by contract or regulation or otherwise, such conditions and restrictions as may be determined by the commission pertaining to such improved old varieties and such new varieties of hops including the root stock thereof including but not limited to conditions and restrictions limiting, restricting, prohibiting or affecting the use, distribution, acreage, production, geographical areas of planting, cultural practices used in propagation, leasing, assigning, selling, sale price, and the use of trade names and trademarks relating to such improved old varieties or such new varieties of hops including the root stock thereof and the increase thereof and the use of trade names and trademarks to designate hops produced from any such old varieties or such new varieties of hops."

Maybe you got some sort of deal between you and Oregon. We (Idaho) won't grow hops and you (Oregon) won't grow potatos.

Oh man, I have recurring nightmares of ADM coming in and stealing my (as yet non-existent) children, and replacing them with sacks of corn that have hats pinned to them and smiley-faces drawn on.
