I just found out there is a co-op in Santa Cruz that sells organic locally grown hops.
I hear of those folks, haven't been down that way. I grow a lot of my own now ... a few years ago I, like the rest of you I'm sure, had trouble getting our fix so I took the plunge and started growing. It has worked moderately well, and this year I've relocated my hopyard to a less sunny spot hoping that will help with my vines tending to bake. Nonetheless I was getting a couple of pounds off a few vines, a good start.
Anyway, here's a big welcome from the previous newest member. I'm glad to use the local slang, and thankful I'm not in So-Cal being forced to brew gnarly beer ...
