Must be nice. My first year cascades are only about 1.5 ft tall.

I have 3 first year cascades, 1 came up and is at about 11 ft and that is all I have for it, I am going to try to make it go sideways. I has quite a bit of cones on it and my only hop to produce so far. I hop to get some out of my chinook as it is looking promising and maybe some willamette but they are only about 6-7ft right now.

I have 3 Cascades and one Chinook... the Chinook is the most vigorous plant. Bigger leaves, thicker bines, grew faster, more burrs. But the Cascades are catching up quickly. They're growing faster now than the Chinook currently is.

My cascade has first year hops, maybe 1/8 oz, but they are lacking in aroma, there is another round forming as we speak that looks more promising.

They're back! The cascades (now second-year) have sprouted! (And so have the Chinook.)

I'm expecting big things from them this year.
