    The sun has decided to come out, and we're sitting at a balmy 6C.

    You'll be having the last laugh in July/August when we're well over 100F for weeks at a time. :)

    It hit 11C today and I had my bike out for the first time this year, a month later than last year. Only got about 40km on the ride but it was still nice to get out.

    We've had a bunch of rain then heat recently and my hops are going apeshitute! I left my guide wire up from last year and will just string up some new twine with the wire for them to climb.

    I picked a "spring crop", about a double handful, from my 2nd year Centennials. They'll add a little touch of flavor to a small batch. If I can keep them watered enough over what promises to be a pretty drought-y summer, they should produce well in the fall.

    We ordered five Cascade, five Centennial, two Styrian Golding, and two Willamette. I can't even keep tomato plants alive that was the reason for the quantity. We put them in pots a couple of weeks ago with potting mix Miracle Gro or VIgaro. These plants are incredible, they have become out new "deck pets". I initially thought they would be good just to learn about the plants, but they are so much fun, we laugh every day at their growth. "Day of the Triffids" I color coded the pots, terra cotta are Cascade, light green are Centennial, black are Golding, dark green are Willamette.
