Default Shoots up in Upstate NY

Third year for my plants, and all three have shoots already...

My cascade last year apparently was rather busy... Trying to clean out around them I pulled a four foot root out that was running just under the soil; trying to get away.

Will post pics once they start to look like something.

I am also in Upstate NY and on yr two of my hops. I have not seen any shoots but I put manure and mulch last week so something might have popped up in the interim. I have some wild hops growing around me and I have not seen any shoots on them.

How was your yield last year?

I always thought that was funny too

Well, downstate, mine are starting also, but I'm thinking about cutting them back tomorrow. I feel like it's too early to let them go. We're still getting below-freezing nights here. What do you all think?

With about 8 inches of snow left on the ground I don't expect to see mine for a while.

I live in western NY. West of upstate! My bines are still hibernating. Need to weed whack around them and mulch soon though. I love my hops. Soon to be overwhelmed with them! I love it!
