Default Arizona Hop Garden Via Texas EdWort Hop Garden

Ed I owe you some beer .Saw your post and I knew that was how I wanted to set up my Hop Garden as I had some free 1 inch EMT poles 60 ft.
and Rail Road ties left over from some other garden projects.

We are going to try our luck here in Hot and Sunny Arizona .
Will continue to up date this post.

great collection. are you going to grow all those on that one tripod? or are you building several? seems like a lot of hops for just one... they'll get all tangled together and it'll be hard to tell them apart at harvest.

No about 6 or 7 on the tripod and plant the others some where else.
