We got some much needed rain here Saturday, Sunday, and as I'm typing its still coming down. I had a great conversation with Rob Austin from NC State Friday. Rob has been doing research on growing hops in North Carolina. Rob is a great guy and really knows his stuff. We have a lot of work to do around here during the Fall and Winter, but are really excited about next year.
After a small amount of rain fell, the ground "seemed soft" enough to break up in preparation for the barley test plot. Ultimately we had to wait for a little more rain to fall, and right now I'm sure its a mud pit.
