Building our hop garden

Early March we were provided the opportunity to use a piece of land near Utrecht, cultivate it and plant our own hops. We started with plowing the ground and planting pole to support the hops.

We choose to order four different types of hop for this season, Chinook, Cascade, Centennial and Willamette. Between the poles we used iron wire with drop downs so that the plants could climb up against them. We also created a drainage system to water the plants on a daily basis.
