An update! Well not so much a photo update but a photo that has my pergola in it. Hops are doing good. Cascade is now at 6', Centennial hit 3' and Columbus and Chinook are close behind. Tomatoes also went in last week

Better picture updates to come!

Love the shot.... and I really really want to try some of that 8-Bit Pale Ale. But sadly it's nowhere to be found here.

bwomp313 - many people put open-bottomed boxes in the ground to contain the rhizomes.

Like Gridlocked said, boxes, raised beds, and in my case I went down 18" with 24 mil plastic. Only on the insides so they may at some point come up on the outside. But I like to think i'm fairly consistent with my rhizome harvesting every year and hope that'll keep them in check. Once a hop garden, always a hop garden

How about a few photos! The Cascade is leading the way at 7' now. Still lagging but considering they were transplants I think they'll produce great come harvest. First photo shows the 3rd year Columbus, 2nd shot is "Matilda", and a whole garden shot, don't mind the weeds i've been out of town.

Was a busy Memorial so last night I finally got out to inspect the plants and tighten the ropes. All plants are growing well, some are showing signs of burnt leaves but overall all our healthy. The Cascade is throwing cones and sidarms and is around 10' currently. I have a bit of clean up to do on the Centennial and Columbus crowns as they're getting a bit overgrown. Matilda is throwing some large sidearms near the lower leaves, thought it looked a bit odd but they sure are healthy.

And yes I still need to give the garden a good weeding.

Onto the pictures!

Default June Update

Things are growing well but i'm starting to think that my plants won't be making it to the top of the pergola this year. The Cascade is around 10' and throwing lots of cones. I'm also thinking the soil may need a boost so i'll be looking to find some enriched soil of sorts that I can top my plants with.

Cloudy day makes for sucky camera phone pictures. I'll get some better ones up soon.

June update.

Both Cascade and Centennial are now throwing spurs. Columbus, Chinook, and Zeus are climbing like crazy. Fuggle and Nugget continue to grow well in the wood planters but are slow. Matilda has thrown another bine from the inch diameter rhizome. And got a new bottle opener from my buddy Gridlocked!
