I get my hops in their plantes Saturday afternoon. We were suppose to get some rain this weekend so I thought it would be a good time to get them in. We got a deluge yesterday, 1.75" of rain! Im hoping they dont rot in there...

So as I am walking out the door this morning I think to my self:
"self, going to work on Monday is like knowing you're going to get kicked in the nuts. You just don't know when or by who"

I've often wondered if I've been giving my rhizomes too much water. I usually thumb around in my soil (very carefully) and water the pots once a day usually, sometimes I skip a day depending on how moist / wet (or dry) the soil is. I hope it doesn't rain too much when I put them in the ground, or get too cold.

I worry too much.

I think once you get some halfway decent bines going, the hops are all but invincible to weather. (Well. Most weather, you know what I mean)
