Here's my first year Columbus and Willamette. Got a late start, got them into planters Wednesday, and then built the trellis yesterday.

My hops took a beating from a recent hail storm. 75 percent of the growth tips and sidearm were damaged. Its going to be a let down of a season from what I can see after a week of recovery. Some instantly started to burr (way too early) other just look terrible. A ton of new spouts also have come out of the crown but I think it is way to late to start over here in Michigan. Luckily once there established it is next to impossible to kill them.

Here is to looking forward to next season!

Cheers!

Here are my first year Sterling (R) and Willamette (L) both started from rhizome in Early may in Michigan. I have begun to really run out of space for the sterling though and its only mid/late June... Anyone have any advice, should I somehow rig something up to give it more growing room? will it be ok if I leave it alone? I don't want it to just break off, which is my main concern.

Also, they are in pots, so they are moderately mobile if need be.

We have had an awful Spring up here in Minnesota! Snow throughout May and now it WON'T STOP RAINING!! I finally see some Tettnanger coming up, but it's nt looking very happy. One plant is a little greener, the other kind of yellowing.

This is my first year, so i don't know what to expect, especially in these conditions. The ground is so saturated that trees are falling over! Any advise?

Tettnang are looking great and I have been picking them and throwing them in my glass whenever I am drinking an IPA. Cascade are slower but seem to be growing taller and taller every day.

Pic 1 is the entire garden. The two posts closest to us are the tettnang and the cascade run along the left side posts, one of which you cant see and pic 4 will show you

Pic 2 is a close up of the tettnang that seems to be maturing the fastest. Its crazy how the left side of this plat has so many cones almost ready to be picked and the right side you can clearly see is just starting to produce cones.

Pic 3 is the same shot as pic 2 but farther out

Pic 4 is the left side post that you couldnt see in pic 1. Starting with that big tree posts and continuing along the left side are 3 cascade plants with the closest one doing the best.
