Bought two pounds of loose leaf hops yesterday. Mind you they are all in vacuum seal packs so will keep but I see a lot of Hop Pops in our future! Woo Hoo....never have we bought so much loose Hops at one time. Goes to show that the Hop Pops are gainin' popularity.
We have planted some Hops in our garden but they won't be producing until next year. It is fun seeing the plants growing from rhizomes. Our Black raspberries are producing a lot of berries so watch out for some fresh rasperry truffles in the next week or two. It is quite the battle between us and the birds as to who gets the nice "Black Jewel" raspberries first. So far we are winning but I am willing to share. Just wish the darn birds wouldn't just take one bite out of each berry! We are also keeping a close eye on our figs and this a fight between us and the deer. Ok Deer........ you can have the low lying fruit and we will have the upper fruit that you can't reach.... is it a deal! I'll sign loff now as I am ranting. I see a Brew Chew in my future........Mmmmmmm....say no more. Until my next ramble...... keep on trufflin'.
