No joke, some of the sprouts on my 3rd year Chinook are 10" long already and there are about 30 of them. Cascade and Centennial are not far behind. I've got to make some time to get them out of pots and into the ground.

Mine are popping too in the planters, waiting a few more weeks before I put them outside for good though

Yep. The cascade and northern brewers are pushing up. Waiting for the willamette and magnum. I will put them outside probably next week.

You guys don't have to keep your hops in containers do you? I know that the winters can be harsh up here, but I was planning on planting my new rhizomes directly into the ground after the first frost this year. Have you noticed better performance by allowing them time to takeoff inside before bringing them out for good? Is that performance worth the less root space they have? I'm really torn right now between containers and a more "permanent" space for the hops.

Mine are in pots because it was still freezing at night when I got my Rhizomes. As soon as I find a weekend to do it I will get them in the ground. I'm a little concerned about transplanting them but it was my only option at the time.

Mine have finally come up. Cascades and Fuggles first, as always. Had another freeze this morning though, makes for slow growth. Need to get new twine hooked up, but I figure I have two months.

My Cascades have about 2 or 3 inches of new shoots popping out of the ground. Planted 'em last spring but got no cones last year. Hoping for a first crop this year.
