Trip to Kentucky Hemp Fields!

I just returned from a trip visiting hemp farms in Kentucky. The first farm had hemp which was planted about a week before, and the second farm I visited had more mature plants, which were between knee and waist high.

One of the farmers gave me retted hemp stalks from last years harvest and yesterday began the process of transforming them into paper. As the fibers cooked, they began to turn a beautiful golden color.
