Is it beer yet?

Months ago we researched different climbing vines and discovered that hops, as in beer hops, makes for a pretty vine. Because of its deciduous nature, we planted it with our old decorative trellis which looks good with vines in the spring/summer/fall and will still look good bare when the vine has to be cut back for winter.

The rhizome was purchased online and arrived in an envelope with some instructions. It basically looks like a stick and there was some doubt it would actually do anything or if it was even alive still.

Here is March 15:

And then April 15 and May 15. It’s growing good!hops2

So the big question for Mike is… when do we get to make beer?
