Some questions:
1- Are hops difficult to grow in Oklahoma?
2- Where would one find hops rhizomes to plant?
3- If one harvests more than he can use, can you sell 'em on eBay?

With adequate watering, you can grow them in most places

Most hop farms have them, MOST online homebrew stores do too. You may not be able to find any now though. Most take order in late winter/early spring and have already shipped them out for this year.

After a couple years, you should have quite a few cones... you COULD sell them, but you have no idea what the actual AA is of them, so it may be difficult to find a buyer for a bittering variety.

I don't yet have a place to grow them, just planning ahead a couple of years.
