I started the Centennial hops, from a rhizome, last year in April 2012.
The Chinook hops, I purchased as a crown, from Greatlakeshops.com, last year in June 2012.
Now i'm prepping the yard, and building bigger raised beds. I want more hops!

Got another 1" or so today. Another couple of lake effect for tomorrow. Highs in the low 30's in the 10-day forecast.

At this rate, my hops will be popping up around memorial Day.

Here is a pic of my townhouse roof top grow. The container is a drilled out 189L rubbermaid container with a 3rd year Willamette. This is first year in the new location. The trellis is made out of a sawhorse bracket and is about 7.5ft high. Not as high as I'd like but i'm going to zig zag the bines a few times before they hit the top. Hopefully it will work out alright.

I like the idea of that saw horse bracket for the trellis. I may have to use that for this year. I kind of waited until the last minute and may not have time to plan out and get something more permanent into place. How sturdy does that feel?

It feels very solid once I screwed on the diagonal and the side piece under the cinder block. Its wedged into the space which helps the stability too. I contemplated doing a chin up on it- I think it could handle it but it was too high to comfortable reach. I didn't want anything too permanent as I don't know how well it will go over with the neighbours. It didn't cost a lot to make: $4.99 for the brackets, $15 for the 2X4s, $4 for the 2X3s, $1.50 for the screw in eyes.

That's awesome. It looks very clean, too. I don't think the neighbors will mind. And if they do, no homebrew for them!

Still waiting on my rhizomes to come in but it probably doesn't matter since it is snowing right now and adding to the 3" we got last night.
