they say after the last frost of the season.... and then in they go. I was going to have my parents grow me some hops in their garden, they live east of cleveland. Let us know how northern ohio's climate is for growing them.

Yeah after the last expected frost, although they can stand a light frost especially if they aren't above the ground yet.
I think your weather calls for some cold even yet, although not like what I got.
My hops are still under 2 feet of snow, and we are getting a dusting of snow ATM.

I'm planting mine today. It's 82 degrees & sunny here in Austin.

Man, I love global warming!

If you can dig a hole with anything smaller than a jack hammer, it's time. Once the ground has thawed, you're good. Even a late frost after the bines come up isn't a killer.

Note: this means no hops in Las Vegas. Ever.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
