Interesting article although the 'gooseberries in imitation of hops' is puzzling (WHY?)

Thanks, darius. I won't be making any beer or sleep pillows, but I might use hops up a cattle fence panel to create a backdrop against the house for a bed that gets too hot. I notice you didn't tell us how to make beer though. Ha ha! It's just as well. :-) Good job!

Nice, Darius. I loved crushing the flowers and smelling them. I have to say mine were very aggressive and I had to remove them, which was not easy. The mass of primary roots that I dug up was the diameter of a truck tire. They were starting to wonder quite a distance. They would grow noticeably in one day! If uncle Joe fell asleep on my bench...

Thanks for this article! I was especially interested to know how hops can be used medicinally for IBS. Sometimes I need a calming tea and hops would be a good addition to a tea mix.

Darius, thanks. I enjoyed the article. I have seeds and I am so tempted to grow this plant. But I just don't know where to put it.
