After almost a month of this crazy warm weather all good things must suffer and suffer my farm did last night. The temperature was 31 degrees at 5 am this morning and continued to drop to 29 degrees until 8:30 when the rise began. The wind and the freeze caused much damage. Almost all of my blueberries and many of my hops vine tips were frozen. Below are some pictures. To see more details about what happened see my blog at www.hopnblueberryfarm.blogspot.com

Hope everyone interested in growing hops in WNC will attend our first meeting of the season, this Thursday, April 5th at 4:30 at the Highland Brewery Tasting Room. Check here for directions: http://www.highlandbrewing.com/tasting-room/
Bring your ideas, questions, and thoughts about how we can work together to improve local hops cultivation and marketing. Please help get the word out to folks who you think might be interested--and invite them to join the blog!
See you all Thursday.
