..Sorry. I live near Bend, Oregon, the sun and fun capitol of the US,
at least until Tektronix decides to move us back to Beaverton...
In addition, he comments on hard frosts limiting the arrival date of the
hops shoots. In this area, the growing season is extremely short--we can
have snow in July! And the frosts come early in the fall--even as quickly
as the first of September! I think it's hard freezes that are the worry.

Then Jim Broglio says,

It's not too late to plant them in Seattle. You can order them right now
from Freshops or Nichols, and they will have plenty of time to grow this
year...That is, assuming you see the sun this year in Seattle!
