Well I just had chain link fence put around my yard. I thought they were done as of friday. so the section bordering my beergarden i mulched and planted hops. Had 5 of the 12 rhizomes had shoots poking through. 3 of em were over 2" already. well the wife forgot to mention that she added something to the fence job, i came home 2day to see a 350lb fence buildin bastard standin on my hops plants. all that had shoots are broken......I know they are tough, Im sure they will grow back, but can I cry now?

I'll cry with you, some bustard something broke my centennial last year! But it grew back I know what your feeling though the next 2 weeks will be trying no doubt.

Hang in there run to your nearest home brew stat. The hop front will improve.

350lbs is nothing compared to the 3500 aphids that land on the plant later on. Good luck.

It sucks. I had frost and other things kill my sprouts the first year and second year. A cut worm got one of them. They will grow back. Maybe a bit of a late start, but they will catch up.

My dog just dug up one of mine - probably due to the Moo-Naure that I just dug into the soil. Time to build a fence.
