Nothing for me yet at all. I'm starting to wonder. A few of my other plants are already starting to stir and I have been actively pulling weeds almost daily.

My cascade crown has now put up about 8 little red asparagus looking shoots all around the stump of the main vine from the first year. The willamette next to it has not broken ground yet but I did some careful digging and there are just as many white shoots reaching up and out on that crown. These are second year plants, I am ready for a real crop this year. Now to get some manure on them and get the twine out.

I am 2 hrs S of the Vancouver in BC, and have hops up all over. My oldest plant has 20-30 little shoots up. I think I need to thin. I have already robbed rhizomes, and those are coming up.
I planted rhizomes from a friend, and those are coming up.
As long as I don't get a late freeze that sets them back, it could be a record year for hop production in my yard!

Yeah, for me too. My cascades are over a foot high already.

My Cascade have been coming up for about a week. The Chinook are just now pushing the ground up. I expect to see shoots in a few days. These are second year plants and so far look strong. I am also hopeful for this years crop.

Ugggg. I was mucking about in the hop yard yesterday. the soil is still frigging cold as can be. Healthier than I have ever seen tho'. I have yet to check the pH but just rubbing my hands over the surface would bring earthworms up as if they were screaming "get offa mah lawn!".

At any rate, about 9 of 13 plants are emerged already. Too damned early!

I guarantee I'll be cutting them back until after Easter. If I don't, it will guarantee a late hard frost, cold snap, snow, or worse (like last year) a massive hail storm that will just perforate everything.
