I got my garden turned this last weekend and my 4 new hop plants in the ground, and new string on my hop pole. My last years plants have started growing, but the weather is supposed to turn cold again hopefully they won't freeze.

Dont have anything to take pics of yet, hopefully soon.. Put a single cascade and a single Northern Brewer in the ground 5 days ago.. Gently uncovered them yesterday evening to check if I was waiting on sticks and there is new root growth and sprouts everywhere so I expect them to be busting out any day..

I feel like an idiot walking out to look at them every 2 hours..

Don't laugh...it's to keep the cats from crapping in my hops!


Cascades taking off first, as usual:


Centennial not far behind:

The distance between poles will be 25', with 50' of cable so I can lower and raise the ridge portion, for attaching and removing the ropes. The cable will be fixed at one end and on a SS flush mount pulley on the other pole.
Henry I was going to do the same thing the lady next door works for comsumers I think I might be able to get them dropped off maybe even stuck in the ground.
Do you ever get to Owosso our brew club meets there at the wrought iron grill.

Get used to it! I check on mine several time a day when I am home. Just to see if they have grown.

First time trying to link a picture....hope this works....

Picasa Web Albums - S - Hops

So this is my first attempt growing hops. From left to right I planted.. Cascade, Chinook, Saaz, & Fuggle. You'll notice the Fuggles are in that tiny planter...my other large planter fell apart on me...so I'm going to transplant it in a week or so when I get a new planter. Also, you'll notice I added that trellis type device in the back of each pot...and leaned them against the porch..allowing the hops to further climb up the rod iron railing for a total height of about 12'.

Seeing that this is my first time....any sort of feedback would be appreciated.

I got my rhizomes in the ground on Tuesday. I had to use tomato plant cages to keep my dog from diggin them up. I also sprinkled some cayanne pepper over the mounds.

Hopefully my hops do not turn out angry. Like the whopper.
