Plant them in containers and sell them next year as second year plants (more yield) and jack up the prices... ;)

i thought of that doc,would be fine for local people but no good for shipping I E = higher shipping costs for live plants, would also need at least a ice cream sized container. will see what happens. :cheers:

I have a Tettnang from last year that died in the summer heat while I was gone for my wedding and I ordered a Hallertau that will be replacing my Nugget (if I can get it out of the ground intact and to my buddy who has "such a high south-facing wall that collects all the heat that I'm dying")...

You may soon be the object of some ambitious vice investigators, meeting kids in parking lots and selling baggies from the back of your car. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
