the Thaw is in...

I have gone from fearing that the planting season will never arrive to worrying that we are behind the curve, all in about a week.  Things are starting to get green and the ground is drying up....I think it is prime plowing and planting time.  Time to decide how to plow and get my hop rhizomes lined up.  Need to build the trellis system, check the soil pH, work some lama poop into the soil...and have a beer in the sun.

One interesting thing I have noticed is that there is significant movement amongst the better brewers to produce beer with locally (to them) sourced barley and hops.  I have recently purchased and sampled "estate" grown brews from Rouge Brewery and Sierra Nevada.  I will report further on these shortly.

  1. Yesterday's warm weather pulled us outside, digging in the dirt. It also made us wonder if Windy Hill was becoming a farm yet. I'm glad to hear that it is at least happening mentally.
