Just going to have trouble with the deer as I have been told deer love hops.
That is my concern as well...is there any good way to keep them out (short of lead poisoning...which is always an option)?

I am a very poor shot but my granddaughter is excellent with her bow... guess maybe I will fill the freezer with some venison.

i love GLH and my FB order went without a problem! The best part is, after planting last fall I can see new growth coming through the pine needles! Spring is near.....

My hops came today. A day earlier than USPS tracking said. Now I'm frantically trying to get my raised beds in place. They look good and healthy. Two trash cans full of humus, two big bags of peat, some potting soil I had around the house, and some sand from a sand box I took out. Should do the trick.

I'm taking out a stretch of river rock to make room for planters. Kind of glad it's not going to be the 78F they forecasted.

That's strange. I have read that animals are not a problem. Except possibly with very young shoots. Bugs and fungus/diseases might be more of a problem. Again, from what I have read. I have never grown any. I am considering it though. I guess I will have to make up my mind relatively soon!
