    I reread your original post and realized that you intend to harvest the cones ahead of time,
    for the purpose of brewing. This throws a wrench into the "harvest day of" plan.

    Why not just harvest day of? Did that at mine, two years ago. Gave a few trusted family members
    some tree pruners, blue tarp, and instructions. They brought them to the girls setting up who
    clipped th...

    Oh, and I added mobile cup holders to the yard, for the rare occurance when I get help from
    adults.

    Finally bringing us up to today:With no available help besides my 10 month old daughter, I
    employed the use of my Shepard's pole and the top cable winches. I could tie all of my knots at
    ground level,...

    So my other concern with my existing trellis is that, with twice as much hop plant "sail" that
    East/West winds could potentially tax my 4x4s to their breaking point.Though the north and
    south poles ar...

    This ridiculously simple epiphany solved all of my problems AND cut my knot tying time in half!
    Wait... what could possibly go wrong? Perhaps the teenager and his Epically-blonde step-father
    could mak...

    This bothered me all winter and I'm almost embarrassed by how simple the answer was.If the
    bottom knot is held by the plant, and my primary wind concern is out of the south, that means
    the ropes leani...

    So the problem that haunted me all winter long was "how am I going to run 2 ropes per plant
    next year?" And "how much more will it cost with twice as much rope?"Oh, and also "How will the
    trellis make...

    Crummy weather and below average temps would continue all April. It wasn't until the end of the
    month that I got back out there to reinspect the field.65/66 plants survived the winter and
    we're pushin...
