Hops always kinda remind me of buds.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

A guy gets used to it, make your face like a leather bag.

I try to make my experience as enjoyable as possible, but most days I end up busting my ass. I'm looking forward to it, but by the time fishing season comes I'm usually ready for it to be over with.

I encourage people to get out and take opportunities like this, its not about the money its about living like a human being.

Ya, im most definitely not in it or the money, i was at first. Then it came to be my favorite hobby. Now i do it cause i love it. I may feel like shit somedays, but like you said its about being a human being. If i didn't start working up there i wouldn't ever have a chance like this again.

Tell me about it. The past 2 summers I have worked on an Ostrich Farm out in the middle of Arizona. Literally smack dab in the middle between Phoenix and Tucson. It's actually the world's largest Ostrich farm and they are the only ones in America with a special breed called South Africans which are tame (at least for ostrich)

We are growing, Cascades, Centennial, Mount Hood, Fuggles, Nugget. Also to make them 10 times better they are 100% organic, the whole farm is!

Shit form online is meh, most beer companies(unless they run their on farm) get shit product, no smell, all dry, swept up from the corners of warehouses. You looking for a large amount?

And for anyone interested i can post some pics of how things are going, its crazy huge, something really cool to see.

I'm currently growing a couple of nugget varieties at my parent's place...but i feel like its too hot down in the southeast, because i always get lanky growth and a few spindly looking cones...but oh well it's a lot of fun growing them :awecid:

peace,
