Are you going to make your own beer?

Ha ha, no! Too much hassle from the raw ingredients. In my younger days I did make my own from kits. It was strong stuff too. Not sure my body is up to drinking much of it these days though! 😄 @gjones

They are pretty. I grow them too although they've never produced a hop in 3 years.

I started these from seed last spring. They didn't grow too big last year, but this year they've grown like crazy & flowered. I only tried them out of interest, being something different & I'm quite pleased with them 🙂 @columbiariver

I won't give up hope. I'm sure it's their location to be honest

This is in a fairly sunny spot & maybe a bit too much to its liking! @columbiariver

Somewhere between your sun and my shade there is a perfect spot for them gramps 🤣😂 My 9th grandchild is due at Christmas. A big surprise to their 40-something parents and a pleasure to me and my husband
