They are fun to grow and more legal than their plant cousin Canibus sativa

My husband just expressed interest in growing hops. Did you raise them traditionally or do anything "permaculture."

They are on a mini swale in my veggie garden
I also have some other varietys on a big swale in the bush they havnt done as well yet
they are grown from rhysomes and seem to like well rotted mulch
they probably have a role in providing summer shade

Well, we're going to plant them in sunny(ish) forested spots near a stream. I'll report back in 7 or 8 months!
 
Story like this gets better after being told a few times. Or maybe it's just a tiny ad:
