I've always tried to keep other things out of my hop beds, mainly because I was worried about the hops taking over.

Just came up with a very simple bodge for this independently using a tea strainer. This seemed like the best place for it.

Just thought I'd point out that I've started growing hops again this year. Willamette, Cascade, Galena, and Columbus. I've moved to the DC area though since last year. Blog is the same as before...

Thanks for the confirmation. I'm just hoping that it contents itself with the tomato plant. Fortunately hops don't really have interiors so with any luck it won't be able to hide very well on it.

Thanks for that. It's a lot easier to ID bugs when you have a name to go with. Just searching with an image can take for ever. Didn't know if I had a Japanese beetle or a Green June bug that was for...

Thought I would post some pics of my progress, three weeks after the rhizomes were planted. They are Willamette, Goldings (looking a little sad in comparison) and Northern Brewer.
