Sprouting hops sighted!

At first it seemed like just another warm spring day. The grass is greener and the maple buds are opening.

I decided to take a look under the dead leaves. Hmmm...what's this? Could it be?!

Hole smokes! The Cascade hops rhizomes are sprouting! Whoohoo! Actually, it looks like some of the other varieties planted in other locations are too :-) If you click on the picture you can see the bines sprouting.

Don't forget to vote. Two clicks can tell us what you think about growing your own hops. The poll is located over there on the right.

NOTE: Yes Marck, this is the beginning of an endless barrage of hops posts. ;-) If you want to read last years recount again here is the 2006 collection.

cool, did you start with jumbos or regular size rhizomes?

We used regular rhizomes. This is the second season for these. They were planted last year. Checkout the link on the right called Growing Hops for the full story.
