Default Show of your 2013 Hops Garden! (picture gallery)

Lets see those pictures of all your awesome setups for 2013!

I'll start with mine:

This is my second year, I've got four in halved barrels, and one in the ground by the fence. The one on the far right is the only new first year rhizome, a centennial, and then cascade to the left of that, then columbus, and then an unknown mystery variety which was given to me. The one in the ground is a cascade, I have in somewhat of a raised bed, but I want to see how it will do in this Georgia clay, so we'll see how that goes this year.

very cool. This is going to be my first year using rhizomes. I don't have anything prepared yet. I think they are supposed to ship in march. Gotta take a trip to home depot and get some poles and fertilizer.

will you be giving those plants additional heights to scale once they make it to the top of those strings? because with the sun & heat y'all get in GA i'm pretty sure your plants will outgrow them by july, if not earlier.

all of my plants are still dormant and the ropes haven't been strung up yet. still a few months to go before that happens.

Same here, and under at least a foot of snow. I'd love for the snow to melt and see some shoots coming up, but for that to happen, the snow would have to last another month, and I sincerely hope THAT doesn't happen.

I still have to plot out my garden this year. Last year, I had 4 cascade plants on the fence-line and 5 centennial plants near the deck.

After 2012 harvest, another HBT member sent me more rhizomes (3 varieties) that I planted in my existing beds for them to winter and begin establishing. Going to replant those in March/April. Still need to figure out where...

Last year I experimented with lowering the rope and retying it to give it more height but it didnt really work out as well as I wanted to. This year I'm gonna just let them do whatever they want, and see what happens. If it doesn't work out I'm going to see about building a taller system next year. But you're right they will outgrow it quickly, I'm hoping I just end up with a big bush at the top as it grows onto itself. Who know if thats good for it, probably not but thats where I at this year.

I did already have 3 shoots come up from my columbus, but then we got a little cold rainy spell and they stopped growing. They'll probably come up in the next few weeks.

I couldn't help but laugh and then cry a little bit thinking about this thread and you damn southern folk who have thoughts are gardens in your heads because they are actually not to far off. Well, my thoughts at this point are still buried under a metric ass-ton of snow...

In a month or two though I should get some stuff poking up from the soil. A third year fuggle and a second year nugget that produced just a bit last summer.

Here's mine, a centennial, a galena and a Willamette. Plan on building a twine system up to the rafters in a couple weeks once the work on my house is finished.

This is a shot of my cascade and nugget taken Saturday, May 4th. Cascade was 13 foot, nugget 11 foot then, each are a couple feet taller today. Have more pictures of them in Mississippi HomeBrew Forum. ---Mark F.---
