Default Homegrown Hops

I was hoping to get all the hop growers to give us an update on their crop. Mine broke through the ground on 4-02 and on Good Friday I trained the strongest 5 vines onto the twine and cut back all the others. At that time the vines were all about 6" long, as of this morning they were all about 20" long. How's everyone else doing?

still waiting for sprouts myself, but the weather has cooled down a bit here so hopefully they'll come up . . . eventually

I have 7 varities planted, 6 have sprouted. The one I thought would be kicking ass is not doing anything, Chinook. I'm considering replanting it in a pot, because I'm wondering if the location is subpar. I'm giving it another week.

The Nuggets you gave me are up, but I've got them in a pot. One of my many projects this weekend is to erect a structure on my raised vegetable garden and get them snug in the ground.

Both Cascades have about 3 to 5 bines each, same for the Perle. One Nugget has one bine and the other is a no show. Both Cascades and one Perle have at least one bine that is close to or over 6 inches. I'm planning on building the trellis/privacy screen for them to climb this weekend. I dug the holes last weekend, but didn't get any farther.

Does anyone have any pics to post? Boston, your's says I don't have privileges to view, any other way to post?

I've got four up and the 14 ft trellises are in place and twined. We haven't had much sun yet, but the weather guessers are saying sun five of the next ten days. That's all it takes.
