2008 HOPS!

Let see you hops for this year!

I split my big Fuggles this year. So hopefully I'll get two nice Fuggles plants and didn't just kill the one I had...

As far as I can tell thats all rhizome.

They are defiantly starting to come up tho.

My Fuggles have already shown their face this year. Kind of weird because it's still getting way below freezing every night. We're even suppose to get like 3" of snow tonight.

I've got nothing yet on the Cascade I planted last year, but its still getting really cold at night. My newest additions are still in the fridge, so unless you want a picture of a brown paper bag, you'll have to wait a few weeks...

Just cover them up with a bucket or some such... the heat in the bucket should keep them from freezing.... maybe a little mulch to add more heat...

And advice on splitting that rhizome, Lufah?

I've got "two" cascades and one is going nuts, the other is MIA. So I'm thinking of splitting the strong one, any input from the army is always appreciated.
