Ready for better weather.

Well the hops are in pots, waiting for better weather to dry up our garden.
Thought I would post a link with some pictures so you can see we are on our way.

We have a lot to do in a very little time. Next is to get the poles and cables up.
I will keep you all updated as to our progress.

Thanks for your interest.

im going to be planting mine this weekend, any suggestions on soil? I have a compost in my backyard and was going to plant mine in big pots and mix the bought soil with some compost.

Well I'm not the Horticulturist of our group. But we just used a top quality potting soil mixed with Osmocote. He would like them to get a little root bound before we plant them. He says this will help with plant production.
We used a 9" mum pot, wide and shallow.
