How many hops are supposed to be there? The three lobed leaf in the bottom right is a hop, clockwise from that there's a weed, couple of tomatoes and something that is either a tomatillo or a weed.

Where's Lakewood? If necessary, I could stop in and offer professional (not!) advice and drink your beer this weekend. But I have a feeling it's too far from Youngstown.

I have about 6 varieties of hops, so I'm no expert, but I can recognize 'em when I see 'em.

Those actually look like something in the nightshade family.

Ha. Lakewood is just west of Cleveland. I kinda feel stupid that I've been babying these weeds. I planted 1 cascade, 1 centennial, and 2 willamette rhizomes so I'm guessing that's my centennial in the corner.

These weeds are all growing almost exactly where I planted the rhizomes. Ugh. And you are right as I have 3 tomato plants near my weeds.

Hops send out suckers thats what is going on I don't see many weeds their, typically if it was witch grass, crab grass, or any other grass i would remove it from around the hop vines, also during the fall, and winter time when your hops die back, you can cover them with weed barrier to keep weeds out, removed during the spring time.

Totally off-topic, but I'll be visiting my family. Youngstown is my hometown.

So....these are my hops just the suckers and I should cut them down?

Yeah that's what I thought too. Deadly nightshade is not something you want to be putting in a beer...
