Was able to dig up two additional cascade offshoots today and replanted so now I have 4 Cascade plants. Not shown is a Mt. Hood.

Pretty!

After the death of my bines last year (my irrigation system failed last year in the dead of summer and I wasn't checking on them) it doesn't look like they are going to come up again... :-(

Awesome.

I have some second years coming up right now too, mine are about 1/2 as big as yours, maybe a bit more. Def better looking than last year.

How many bines per plant are you letting grow?

I get SO tired of all these great pictures of people's hops in the Spring! Going into the fourth year and I won't see much growth until late May. Only three sunny warm days in the last two months.

You could always move south, where sensible people live: )

The Cascade has around 7 or 8 bines. Will be cutting back to 4 bines in the next day or two.

Did you do anything to them during or before the winter? not that you have much of a winter in Alabama.

Very cool that you were able to propagate those hops. How do those look compared to the 2nd year hops? The cuttings i took from mine when i transplanted have done zip. The original plants themselves are doing great though.

Hey, I was just wondering how you anchored those PVC's into the ground? I had planned on building a pergola to sustain my hop growth, but instead went with PVCs as well, however, no T at the top... nice touch... looks like I should add that for sure! I'm assuming those are 10' tall....?

Thanks man!
