Bad Hop Daddy (Again!)

I said it before and I’m saying it again, I am a bad hop daddy!

Bad Hop Daddy (Again!)

This picture was taken about a week ago and they are already way more crazy than this. These are 5 year old Cascade hop plants jammed into a smallish flower pot. When I moved in November of ’06 I dug up my hops and brought them with me planning on replanting them in March/April of ’07. Well, I never found a good spot to plant them so they lived in the flower pot until now. Well, actually they’re still in there, but I’m working on it, I swear. Right now I have some raised beds that I’ve thrown together (probably already too small) and have the hardware for the trellis (20ft!). Now the trick is to choose the proper location for the bed, figure out how to securely anchor the trellis, and to get these puppies in the ground. If it isn’t one thing it’s another.

    We are bad hop growers too because our”dead” hop plant left outside in a planter box during snow, sleet, rain, and dark of night has mysteriously sprouted a new and is at least 2 feet tall, already twisting up the curly stake Richard installed last summer. Whatever our bounty may be, it is yours.
