Step one in the production of my 2011 wet hop IPA: plant hop rhizome. Ok, maybe not, but I am giving hop growing a go this year. Just the one Cascade rhizome, starting out in a big pot so that I can control growth and move it to a sunnier spot if necessary. This post is more about the pictures than the words to be honest, but it’ll hopefully be the first in a diary that chronicles growth from planting all the way up to harvest. I’m not expecting many cones in the first year but you never know, might end up with enough for a late hop addition if I’m lucky.
