Just wanted to document my progress (success or failure) with my first attempt at growing... I have ordered 8 rhizomes (Goldings, Chinook, Cascade, Columbus) and will see how each performs. As far as my trellis system i have rigged them to climb up the sides of my brew shed and will have a small picket fence made out of pallets in order to keep the dogs from digging. Will update as progress is made

Unfortunately they all have been beat down by rain over the past week with one more day to go. They are looking kind of sad, I am definitely looking forward to some sun.
