Hey! I'm on those cascade crowns! Thanks!

DONE! Four crowns coming my way. Wonder if I can make a beer called four crown ale with first seasons harvest.

With four crowns you should definitely be getting a solid harvest. Wait till you see how huge the crowns they sell are.

Seemed criminal uprooting my rhizomes in place of the new "crowns". I think that some were field grade plugs. Regardless, still much more developed than my existing. I was thinking about planting the magnum rhizomes on the old kids Playset to let them climb that, it realized the puppy might get into the hops. Where the other hops a planted are behind a row of rosebushes mostly and in big planters, more puppy safe than in the dirt.
I'll post some pictures once I get my "trellis" installed, which is really just some coir twine.

I can't speak for everyone's dog here but I can say mine never messes with my hops at all. I even throw my hops out in the yard post boil and he never shows any bit of interest in them.

I wouldn't throw out your rhizomes either. No reason to really. Just transplant them if need be so you have more plants.

Not many good places to re-locate without having a huge hassle come harvest time

I don't know if it would work in your space but I've been thinking of making a sort of trellis with a hinge in it. Say the trellis is 15ft, more of just a piece of wood with a hook at the top to hook twine on. Have a hinge around the 4-5ft mark that you can use to slowly lower the upper half of the trellis to harvest. Then when your done you just raise it back up. Probably sounds more complicated than it is on paper.

You can always install chicken wire around the hops
