Hey Tim,
What is your geographic location?
I am in Virginia and don't know when to expect mine. 'Course I just planted 'em last week.

Southern Oregon here. Ms. Golding has been in for about three weeks but had a bit of a 'head start'. She was budding when planted. The Cascades, Liberty, Mt.Hood, and Nugget are just visible. I'll post some pix of them soon. I went directly to Freshops and bought them as they were being trimmed. I was treated to a wonderful brown ale as my purchase was being collected - a very cool experience indeed! Picked up 10 oz. of dried hop flowers, too.

Good luck with yours! Our weather has been relatively cool and wet (thankfully, as we expect a drought this summer) so yours shouldn't be too much longer.

Wow, Freshops actually let you go there to pick them up??? When I asked them about that last year they said no way, just order them. Did you just drop in unannounced, or have they changed their tune?

I called ahead of time and asked directions. Perhaps I hit them at just the right time. I was prepared for a huge operation with hop arbors all over the place and a large modern production facility. I was quite pleasantly surprised by the down-home modesty and back-country simplicity of their place. Truthfully, I had a little difficulty finding them!

I was invited to join in the trimming and separating of the rhysomes. I declined as I had already driven 400 miles that day and had another 200 to go. Next time, though, I'll know to take a bit more time.

Dave Wills, the owner, is also involved with the Oregon Trail Brewery in Corvallis, about ten miles away. The nut brown he served up for me was an Oregon Trail product and was perhaps the best I've ever tasted!

It was a very positive, educational experience.

P.S. - NAYY with either Freshops or Oregon Trail other than being a VERY satisfied customer!

Hey Brent,
When did you plant your hops? They are already so tall!

Those were planted last spring 2000. That is off of one root. I just transplanted and split up about 5 other roots, they are just comming up on the other side of the yard. Those suckers root fast. I remeber last year planting the 3 rhysomes, they were only about 6" in length, but after seperating them, I must of had about 48" of roots.

Brent,
Where in St. Louis are you? I'm in the city and have considered planting some hops - not this year, too much other work to do on the yard, but I'd be interested in seeing your setup.
