Update:

For the first time ever, all of my rhizomes took off. Here's a really bad cell phone picture of them. We need to weed, and finish building the walkway around them. Hope everyone else had a good hop turnout this year too!

New rhizomes Willamette and Sterling poked their way through the dirt over the weekend. Waiting on Mt Hood yet.

Hallertau, Tettnang, Cascade, Liberty, Willamette and Brewer's Choice. The Cascade are great for dry-hopping!

Ryan,

You just keep going overboard at the rhizome swap! That ends up helping the economy in the eastern part of the state. Laughing

I have my fingers crossed that both you and Randi have very green thumbs this spring! Wink

I've never had luck with any cascades. They just don't want to join the party I guess.

We've got a 3yr Brewers Gold and 3yr Magnum. I think if I let it, the Brewers Gold would take over the whole deck! It's a really good producer. The Magnum does well too, but its not quite as vigorous.

We're going to try our luck with some Willamettes, Sterlings, and Mt Hoods this year. No more than that though, I think we're all out of trellis.

I agree with the little to zero attention! I have Fuggle and Centennial that are about 5 yrs old, Liberty and Cascade that are about 3 yrs old. Last year at our clubs rhizome swap I went a bit overboard... so now I have Goldings, Tettnanger, Hallertau, Nugget... two others that I can't come up with off the top of my head.

Schmidty, If the rest of these all come up, I'm going to need some new markers! Smile

I have one each of Hallertau and Cascade. I got them a little late last spring, and then they spent most of the summer in pots. So, neither one did well enough to produce. But they both had some good growth. Especially the Cascade. From everything I've read, Cascades are one of the hardiest. I guess we'll see how they do this year, their first year in the ground.

I have two varieties. Cascade and northern brewer. They were planted around 1995 and grow like weeds with zero to no attention.

Just curious, who's got hops growing in their yard? What kind? Are you planting any this year?

People always ask me what the best variety is to plant in ND. I usually reply with "Whatever kind you want to brew with." I don't know if it's true, but I've had some so called hardy hops not come up and ones that I expected to be fairly low yield just take over my deck.
