HopWatch: Year 2

Posted

We’re going to give this whole “growing hops thing” another go. Unruffled by our meager/nonexistent harvest last year, we have transplanted our hop plants to Jeff’s yard. Now they’re out of the pots, off of the volleyball court, and in the ground. We also fertilized with some composting spent grains which probably won’t make much of a difference but is still cool in theory. It’s early, and none of the hops have peaked out of the soil yet. I’m banking on April.

  1. Light. Its all about the direct sunlight :-) Need to get direct sunlight most of the day. Also, some tend to grow better in certain areas and others.

    I have a bunch of resources on my site here…

    This is the 3rd year for our plants. 1st year is usually pretty bad. Second is supposed to be more normal and beyond that they really nit their stride. I’ve seen them grow many inches in a day.
