sorry for getting back so late. I still have over 2lbs of nugget hops from last year that I

I have 5 nugget hills, many vines each. I purposefully did not give the nugget plants as much

Just go here and under "look inside this book" type in "oast".I have 17 hills, with even more

That vine is done growing vertically anymore. Without the tip of the vine, it is unable to grow
