I'm pleasantly surprised to see my hops need some pruning. Both plants nugget & cascade are already 4' tall. The bines at the base are already the same diameter as my index finger. Beefy!

Today I tied up my jute twin and pole. This year's pole has some Viagra!!!

This is the nugget



and the cacade.



The improved pole!!

I believe this is year number 4 for me. These were transplanted on year 2.
