A couple of my first year hops have some signs of something happening and I am not sure what is happening.
Take a look at these pics.
This is a leaf from my Willamette which is my strongest grower, but the lower part of the plant has quite a few leafs like this one
This is my centennial and is only about 4 inches tall and has been like that for the last month and a half
They are on a drip system (1 GPH) and get 8-10 minutes, 3 times a day so about a half gallon. Is this too much? It is hot here, been hovering between 90 and 100+ lately and going to get worse as summer comes.
When I planted I mixed in compost with the soil about a foot deep and like I mentioned these are only 2 out of 5 that are above ground right now. The other 3 are doing just fine, well as far as their leafs.
