Default my hops can beat up your hops.

first pic is of my newport. she's insane. she's already topped the telephone pole and is looking for more.

second shot is of the centennial & cascade. the cascade has run out of balcony to climb, centennial will be there shortly.

the other plants (nugget, santiam, and sterling) are doing well but not quite as impressive. they don't get glamor pix posted until they step up like their big sisters

A little story on how hearty hops can be.

I picked up 2 Centennial rhizomes last year on a whim since the LHBS was clearing them out. I have some room in my yard so I figured what the heck, for $5 if they grow great, if not, nothing really lost. I got home and grabbed a couple old 2 gal plastic pots, dumped in some miracle grow potting soil my wife had laying around, stuck them in, and sat them in the back yard. (way to late in mid June).
A couple weeks later I see some bines begin to emerge so I tie some twine to a post and start them around the twine. They grew ok, but never really got past about 3 feet. By this time it's mid September in PA, so the weather is cooling down and the bines begin to die off. Well there they sat....all winter, in the back yard, in 2 gal pots, in the freezing cold of PA.

Fast Forward to the end of march. I'm in the back cleaning up and grab the pots to get rid of them. I look down and there are 3 small shoots coming up out of each pot. OK, I thought, If you little buggers are still going to try after all that abuse, so will I. With that, I go in the house, grab the car keys, and head to the local Ace hardware to get some compost, twine, stakes, and advice. I get home and start digging a new home for my stubborn little friends. The wife comes out and asks "what are you doing?" I look back and growl " saving a life woman, leave me be" and continue digging to the sound of her laughing and walking back in the house.

Well....here it is 2 1/2 months later and I have the last laugh.

These are my 2nd year, 2 1/2 month old, left for dead Centennials.
For reference, the support wire at the top is 18Ft.

Very cool im looking forward to my Newport taking off next year.

That said, isnt it illegal to have your plants growing on the city phone lines?
I know out here in theory if the city came by and saw plants on their power/phone/cable lines they could and probably would cut back all growth on the public lines, and likely wouldnt take much care doing so and manhandle the plant.

This is my balco-garden. The rhizomes that I harvest off my two 3yo plants establish themselves here before going somewhere else. This year I am only collecting Centennial runners as I already have something like 9 cascade plants and 8 goldings over in my big yard (but only 1 centennial)

Classic, love the line to SHMBO. I can envision the snarly look on your face as you reply/ sneer. Good story...glad the resurrection was a success!

So I got out my tape to measure how long I was...

Turns out my baby is doing pretty well for a first year rhizome in mid-June.
