I planted 10 rizomes and 9 took. I just harvested some of my 2 cascade and got 12 oz dry weight with some more to pick and harvested 13 oz dry from my 2 chinook with around the same left to pick. I think i did pretty damn good for my 1st year the other 5 will not produce enough to harvest they got choked out by my tomatoes. I have learned a lot this year cant wait to do it all over again next year!!!

That's extremely good for first year.

Stake your tomatoes and prune aggressively next year.
