Hops are doing good, a little browning here and there, but not too much... One thing I was wondering is that the other vines that are growing off the main, that contains most of the hops... Do I train those as well, or just let them hang...

Just let them hang. They get more sun that way.

I trained mine because they were getting long.. Seems to be fine that way as well.
