Hops Porn for the winter blues

Post by Winger »

For any that are getting tired of winter, I've found these in my hops garden today.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

Hey doc, guess you were at the wrong page at the right time LOL.

only second yr plants so i am not holding my breath on getting a whack of zomes,i brewed a batch of lager 6 or 7 weeks ago and used the haller that i harvested last summer,turned out really good for 1st yr hop cones so i am very pleased and hope for a good crop this yr.

your on my list with about 10 others that want hallertau.

:cheers:

Awesome! I have a 2nd year plant in the ground outside but there's no sign of it yet.

I've been smashing my head against the wall trying to find German Tettnang rhizomes here - nobody imports those, apparently because they don't grow too well here. I guess next time I go home, I'll have to conveniently forget that I have one in my suitcase... I'm about an hour away from Tettnang when I'm back in "ze Vaterland"...

Man, my garden is under at least 3 feet of snow. I went ice fishing today... Be at least 3 months before anything turns green or grows around here. At least I got some perch today...

Ditto for me Oro and Goulaigan.

We have had 88cm in the last 2 weeks, and temps at night in the -30s with the windchill. Won't be any growing action going on here for quite sometime!
