|Starting to get some height - March 25, 2014|
In our garden we (and that's a royal "we" - Rob's the farmer in our household) have grown tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, corn, and rhubarb. Every year we try to add something different; artichokes, blueberries, romanesco - these are things "we" have tried to grow for our very own.
Last year, for whatever reason, I decided we needed to get a hop plant. Our Winter wasn't as brutal as the rest of the U.S. but the Pacific Northwest had a cold snap that took a toll on some plants. To my surprise the hop that we planted last year is coming back, and it looks better than last season. This hop plant was over-run with aphids, we even tried Safer Rose & Flower insect killer but it didn't make one bit of difference. I thought our little hop was lost - but... look at it now

This is purely ornamental, I have no intention of growing enough hops to make beer. However... we do have a brew kit in the garage ;->
How does your garden grow so far this season?
