It looks like there are a lot of threads about hops breaking ground so it seems time for a catch-all photo thread.

The stubby one was transplanted the other day but seems to be doing just fine.

The other looks really healthy and is really searching now.

Yeah I've got 8 ft snow drifts surrounding my house....although it would be pretty neat to see a Cascade shoot poking out the top!

Northern Brewer. Hopefully I'll be able to get some usable hops from them this year

Hopefully I have anything measurable this year. I have a second year Teamaker and hopefully I will get a Centennial and CTZ from Great Lakes Hops.

I ordered some rhizomes but they haven't come in to my LHBS yet, but here is the raised bed and trellis that I built for them. I put soil in it yesterday, so it's ready to go! It's only 12ft but I built it so I can raise it next year if I need to. I'm doing one each of Nugget, Cascade, and Centennial.

Cant wait to get mine up, also waiting for my LHBS to get them in since we cant import them here in Oregon.

Going to be stringing them up the side of my house, which i measured is about 17 feet from ground to eaves. Probably going to be doing some type of pulley system for all 3 plants so they can be lowered and raised easily for partial harvesting, or if they get too aggressive and want to go above 20 feet i can drop some slack to give them more room to grow upwards....

Planning on Cascade, Columbus, and Newport...haven't done anything with Newport really, but ive read it grows like nothing else here in Oregon and is a really clean bittering hop.

Mine should arrive tomorrow. Any tips on soil/fertilizer? I plan on putting then in large pots for now.

Thanks
