    I have found feral or naturalized hops growing in the chehalis valley near the outskirts of old hop growing farms that date to 1915

    Would anybody be interested in spreading the genetics as it being from preprohibotion plants that have been able to cope with powdery mildew and possibly have been reproducing via seed

    Howdy, It's been a long time since I've posted and this year I've decided to give hops another try in central Texas. This time, it was 4 Cascade rhizomes, but planted in a large deep water trough using the same setup for the twine for the hop bines to climb. So far so good. One has reached...

    Growing Hops With Limited Space

    Growing Hops in AZ.

    I started growing hops down here in Tucson, AZ. Started with just 2 varieties Cascade and Magnum(although I bought a few others to give to my aunt and father-in-law). Both are doing very well, but the Magnum seems to have an early lead. Checkout my blog for updates and pictures...
