It was an email. I can't find it on the site either. Here's some of the text:
Summertime in the Yakima Valley is typically a very hot and dry season, making the valley an exceptional area for growing hops. Growing season is primetime to witness the payoff of your hard work; however, you must be aware of the possibility of aphid infestation in your crops. To help eliminate this frequent issue, we use a specialty pesticide on our farm. Pay close attention to your crops as aphids are extremely common.
Also during this time, you can assist the plants to reach their full potential in many ways. Make sure that the soil surrounding the hop plant is moist, but do not drown the plant by overwatering, as this will cause root rot. After the plants are really growing, (about two months) you should fertilize them with any balanced potted plant fertilizer, such as Miracle-Gro®. Hops also benefit from applications of a garden fertilizer, such as Mega Green, in spring and summer during growth season.
