So I guess I'm a little antsy, but it's been 7 day's since I ordered my rhizomes, and there still not at my door! I figured them being 1 state away they would be here a whole lot quicker. I feel sorry for you fellas in Maine! Anyone else experience a long shipping time from them?

You gotta remember, everyone and their brother is ordering rhizomes this time of year. Plus with the hop shortage it's caused many people to want to try their hand at growing them this year so they're getting a lot of orders.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

You will still get it in three days.... Once they get around to your order

No seriously, as said before everyone and thier brother is wanting to get in on hop growing due to the shortage/prices. Hell, I'd be one of them if I knew my dogs would leave them alone and not eat them as soon as they pop up...

Mine came within the ten days promised.

Idid, however, call Freshops to get an update. Talked to Dave himself. He told me that they received (at the time) over 1400 orders and it is taking a minimum of 4 days to fill each order.

Mine came in good health and condition.

karbinator - you might want to change the shipping. We've also had some heavy rain the last couple days, which makes for difficult harvesting.

The Heart of the Valley meeting tonight is at his brewery (Oregon Trails). I suspect he'll be covered with mud.

Came home to a box today!!
Had to call dave though as the
order was missing the loose hops,
and book, and one jumbo. He was
kind about it, and did mention there
are some new workers in there, so
apparently he's swamped.

I'd have to give him a thumbs up, since
my order was originally 2 days air, he's
going to send the forgotten items 2 day
as well.
