Not sure what everyine has going on but this is my 4th hops season. I have never used anything other than very thin jute twine and 1/16 metal tent stakes and have never had a problem even 2 years ago when the whole town flooded my hops were rock of gebralter.

I get cheap chop sticks, and glue 2 together to make one stake.

Then, drill a hole in the end to run jute string through.

Push down until they won't go any more, then carefully hammer down to below ground level.

The ones that go down easy - just keep moving dirt and pounding till they won't any more.

So far, so good.
