News for Sept. 1, 2009

The Hops Tour of Western North Carolina was a great success. There were 90 plus people who attended the Landsfair Farm and my farm here, the Hop'n Blueberry Farm. Of course, I think the highlight for most was the final visit of the day at Pisgah Brewing Company where samples of their beer were handed out.

Pisgah purchased one pound of my Nuggets to be used in conjunction with some other locally grown hops this week in a special brew. Get in touch with them to see when this brew will be ready for consumption. Their phone number is 828-669-0190.

This week I am experimenting with inter-row coverings. I have two inter-rows covered with landscape fabric. On top of that I am trying sawdust on one row and wheat straw on the next.
I will be trying Crimson Clover on the third row and fourth rows.
