Default Hop growers poll

Do you go to your hop garden once a day, or at least once every other day to check to see how much your plants have grown or train your vines?

Considering my garden houses a ton more than the hops, I do go out there every day. Once they are trained and growing, I don't check the hops everyday aside from watering requirements. After the 2nd year or so I was less obsessed with checking them out daily.

I've been checking it every other day or so. I voted Bacon. I always go with bacon when it's a choice.

Sure, but that doesn't make you obsessed. I check mine because I have them growing horizontally on the composite railings on my deck. I have to keep moving the twist ties I have training them.

Mine are over an hour away. If I'm lucky, I see them every other week.

Wow a long distance relationship with hops. I hope you at least call them once a week!
