Default eastern new mexico/west texas

Does anyone have any experience with growing hops in this area?? I'm trying to do some research on it but with the high winds we experiance here im concerned about how viable it would be. Any information would help.
Thanks!

Also... any help if I am going to kill my hops before I start would be much appreciated... soil in the boxes will be 1cuft of peat moss, 7cuft of soil/fertilizer mix, each box is 3'x3'x1' and will hold three of the same hops. I will be using the ideas I have seen people do with the apartment growing as it is extremely windy here and building a tall trellis would not be viable. Please let me know

Question...
Im thinking about using t-posts on the corners of my boxes and tying string around them, the are 3x3 boxes. What I'm thinking about doing is going up about a foot every side so that ill still have upward growth but not straight up... would this be a viable plan? Every side will end up being a foot higher than the last, so by the end of it they will have only gone 6' but in reality they would have gone 18'

Update so far,
The Columbus has gone simply crazy as of right now, we have had slight issues with the weather by it having random cold spells that are not normal for this area. I have lost the Fuggles cause of the weather i think... the cascade and centennial is going pretty well right now, and the tennang is doing much better than i had hopped
