Yup. I have a map, in my case drawn in an old college science lab spiral notebook. I made a couple of photocopies, just to hedge my bet. By this point (third year) it is committed to memory, pretty much. The challenge I faced in my closely spaced plot was in the spring, when shoots seemed to be coming up all over. I had to have the map out to see just which plant the rhizomes came from, as I pulled them to give them away. Had I not done that, I'd have a hops forest, with no clue what was growing where.
