Hey Guys I wanted to share some pictures of my low budget hop trellis for my Chinooks. First I got 2 Oak tree logs about 19ft long each and pretty strait. Then I went to the hardware store and bought some screw in hooks, a couple small pullys and 3/4" metal conduit 8ft. I had some paracute cord and I used that to rig it up so I can bring the top up and down at the end or beggining of the season. I also hade to buy some jute twine. After tamping in the logs about 2 feet down there not going anywhere. So for about $10-$15 I think this is pretty useful. Let me know what you guys think!
Heres the pully set up
My Chinooks are about 6ft tall 1st year
Heres a pic of another one for my Nugget, Sterling and 2 centenials. I still need to stake down one end. This thing stands about 20ft tall. The plants are short because they kept getting attacked by bugs, but they are growing now.
