Hops Mecca 2.0

So as part of the master plan for the front yard, I finally got around to building the second hops planter.

Still so much to do!
1″ spade bit made a nice hole for the irrigation
I was able to use some of the parts I built last fall. Here you can see how they will weather
I left a gap in the overlap to allow the soil to drain/breath


I’ll be filling the planter with nice rich soil tomorrow, and then keeping it weed free till next spring when I can order rhizomes. I should be able to grow and harvest 16 plants, enough for a couple batches of beer. What varieties should I grow?
