Go f*c yourself!

Nah man, that's awesome. I'm just jealous, all my hops seem to have stunted their growth. I thought growing hops would be easy in SoCal!?

Tese pictues were taken this morning May 3rd. 2nd year Chinnook has reached top of my deck and is going sideways now. it still has 3 months of growing season to go in Hotlanta!

It's a monster! LOL
wow! nice, did you start with rhizomes or crowns last year?? Mine crowns are just starting to grow a little bit.

Found hop cones already on my centennials here in lower Michigan.

My first year chinook and cascade (grown in pots from rhizomes bought in late March) are already about four feet tall here in SE Wisconsin. The Perle and Willamette are a little further behind.

Hell, I'm usually getting the mower out of storage about now, but I've cut my grass several times already. The nice rainstorms we've gotten every other week or so are certainly helping, too...

Yeah my 2nd year Cascade is starting to bud , the chinnook and nugget are powering up the lines. I am putting in 13 more first years this weekend. Should be fun also brewing two batches of beer this weekend.

Nice pictures! All worry about the wonky weather this year aside, it looks like you're well on your way to a nice harvest.
