Default Hops in Jamul, CA

Hi all. Instead of hijacking someones thread and posting my own pics, I decided to start my own. I will likely use it as a blog of sorts through the year.

So any how, I pre-ordered from Northwest Hops in December. I ordered 2 each of Magnum, Cascade, Hallertau, Willamette and Nugget. Last week I sent an email to get the status on my order. Turns out they could not harvest rhizomes from the Magnum and Hallertau because they were too young. So I switched those to Galena and Mt. Hood.

I got them Thursday, and planted them Friday. Here are some pics....

SO I have just about finished my trellis. I drove two 10' old well pipes several feet into the ground. Then bolted a 21' well pipe onto each. There is a pulley at the top of each, and a boat trailer winch mounted on each. I can lower the main cable to secure coir to it. The main cable is at about 21'

Just a quick update. I planted the rhizomes on 3/17/12. It is less than two weeks later and I have 7 out of 10 with shoots so far. One Galena, one Cascade, both Mt. Hoods, one Willamette and both Nuggets.

Thank you much! Yep, as long as I yield something it going in a brew, probably either a Halloween or more likely a Thanksgiving brew. Hmm... I'm growing Fat Max pumpkins this year. Maybe a pumpkin brew with homegrown pumpkin and hops!

Nothing to add, except that my boss lives in Jamul.
