Growing Hops

The Trellis is done the Hops are in the ground.   We are growing 4 varieties on the trellis, Fuggle, Cascade, Sterling, and Nugget.   I will give you updates on their progress.  In the mean time we have an abundant crop of Hops growing on an obelisk in our side yard.   These Hops were planted about 3 seasons ago and they are going crazy. Last year we gave the crop to a friend who makes beer.  This year we will be brewing Sky Kings Malt Liquor.   I will give you updates on the home brew process as we voyage on this journey.  If you have any experience with home grown hops please share it with me.  Ladies, this is a great way to get your husband involved with the gardening and the composting.  The hops love a good rich compost.  He is so into it, he is even helping with the blog.
