I've decided that next year I am going to grow hops in our back yard. I'm going to get a few barrels from Shan's work, cut them in half and use them as planters along the fence. Then I'm going to tie some strings from the fence to the wall and make like a little hop arbor over the deck. It's going to be RAD!

That is sooo cool!!

This reminds me of a story: The first time I went to Latvia in 1999 we visited my granny's old farmstead. It smelled pretty beer-ish in one part of the property and she pointed out the strange looking hops growing alongside the barn that she had used to make beer with 50 years earlier. It was still thriving! She said it would made the best tasting beer ever. I wish I could have taken some but that would have violated all kinds of customs laws and whatnot. Happy hops to you!
