Two blocks from my house:


Sorry, I apparently don't know how to post a video.  I asked a worker who was setting up the trellises and he said "Over a hundred acres".

In Navy boot camp we often patronized "midnight small stores".
Any idea what varieties will be grown?

I saw the picture.

We drove up to the Traverse City area for my wife's birthday. Went by a new field south of town on the way up. Leaving for home, we drove by a new 200 acre field on M-72, probably the biggest in MI by far.

I know all about midnight small stores.  I've been known to sneak into the officers mess while on midwatch... I think the statute of limitations has passed... but I digress.

I will find out what hop variety(ies).  This farm has another block of new hops about 1/4 of a mile away that is just as big - it is all Citra.

That's the above pictured field - just from the other side.
