anicola: very good move!! I was going to suggest that but thought it was too late and that you had tossed it. It should be fine next year and may even grow some this year. We have several months left in the hop season.

B: no problem bud. You make good stuff and other brewers should try it. I love the Saaz and cascade flavors!

July has been one of the wettest months in years in Chattanooga, TN. My first year Columbus have produced a few ounces of nice cones and some male flowers. No worries at all. I just pick them off and let the cones flourish.

Must be mixed with frog DNA

Definitely a stress / adaptation reaction

Nature finds a way!

anicola: Any update on your Columbus? Did it survive and if so, has it produced cones for you? Best of luck!

My Columbus do that too...every year so far. My plants are on their 3rd year and they still look like 1st years so I think that they are PO with me.
