Got a couple of free rhizomes and was wondering what to do with them. Should I plant them to get some growth? Freeze them, eat them... what say you?

I want to see you freeze them then eat then but everyone else will recomend you put them in the ground as soon as possible.

Assume year one is prepping you for year two. Planting them now, consider this half a year. Your plants will be stronger than a year one spring planted hop but maybe not as strong as a year two plant.

well... got them today in the mail... They look dead... Of course they were free, my buddy did say he got them a while ago and never planted them.... Gonna throw them in the dirt and see what happens anyways... Got two cascades and one crystal I think, cant read the label that well... But MY cascades are doing awesome... Was telling the wife we should turn the backyard into a little hop farm... :-)
