Default My yard build

Over the last couple days I transformed my south yard into this monstrosity. This will be my first year attempting hop growing, so I'm planning on periodically updating this thread with pictures as the process goes along.

That will be impressive with hop vines covering it.

A couple pics from today. I noticed a few sprouts on each mound today when I came home from work. I've heard rabbits do and heard they do not eat the sprouts, so just to play it safe I put up a cheap chicken wire fence just to safeguard my investment.
