I already have 4 varieties planted, but am thinking about growing them gorilla style in some local parks. This way I can go and pick them in the wild.
Now there is an idea! Watch out though, I believe deer like hops.
Perhaps that'll keep them out of my yard. Go Jeff!
You could plant a bunch of hops in a circle and then plant something 'else' in the middle.......no one will ever know!
