    Those are just burrs. Many times during their first year they don't have enough energy to put
    into full blown the sidearms but they're conscientious enough to at least make a few cones.
    Hops rock!

  • Posted in thread: Are hops a source of pollen for bees on 05-27-2016 at 01:00 AM
    The boy hops certainly do produce pollen, lots of it, but the bees don't really seem
    interested. Maybe because there's no sweet nectar in hops. Hops are wind pollinated by the way.

    Every year when it comes to spraying early weeds, there's always been a conflict as the hops
    begin emerging at about the same time the weeds begin to grow. If you start your herbicide
    program when the...

    Sure looks like glyphosate damage.

  • Posted in thread: Is the crown that was in the center dead??? on 05-21-2016 at 06:44 PM
    Once you locate and identify one of the rhizomes that's growing out from the crown, loosen the
    soil below it and follow it back to the crown. You should be able to see if there's any life
    left in the ...

    Right on. If you stand over the center of the crown and look down, the rhizomes radiate outward
    like the spokes on a bicycle wheel. Just take your shovel and start between a few of the
    imaginary spoke...

    Those new shoots are popping up from rhizomes that grew outward from the crown, and yes you can
    dig them up and replant without worrying about damaging the new growth. My question would be
    "why did th...

    The first pic doesn't look like anything out of the ordinary. In the second pic, the pale
    looking shoots in the front may be showing a response to something, can't really say with any
    certainty. How's...

    Almost sounds like downy mildew? In a 'normal' shoot, the leaves will be spaced properly along
    the shoot whereas in an infected shoot, the leaf spacing (nodes) will be much closer together
    and the new...

  • Posted in thread: Cut back first hop shoots? Or wait and cut back all but best 3? on 05-12-2016 at 03:11 AM
    What it sounds like is that of your first big flush of growth, you cut back the big ones and
    left a few smaller ones to train. If this is correct, you're good to go.
