Hey everybody. I started the 2013 thread when I first saw my hops pop up last March. Well the first one broke ground yesterday! WOO!

That's funny, I just checked mine yesterday too and they looked exactly like yours. I'm in Reno also. Didn't take a pic tho. I'll be planting some more varieties this year and I'll post some pics later.

Wow. Is it that time of year already?

My hop beds are all buried under three feet of snow...

Cheers!

Oh nice, another Renoite. Yeah, it froze really hard up in Golden Valley this winter and their containers were solid ice blocks for a while so I was worried. But now that I know they are kickin' I need to transplant them to new soil. They had tiny leaf bugs last year so we're starting fresh.

Oh bummer. Yeah we've hit a warm(ish) spell in Reno recently.

Well, in the three hours since I took the first photo, 8 more heads have poked themselves through!

First signs of spring. I can't wait. Plan on growing some hops this year. As soon as the ground thaws.

Figure sometime in July or so I may be able to see dirt again.


I HATE SNOW!!!!

From Michigan - I put some tomato cages around mine to harness some mulch around them last fall. If and when I see the tops of the cages again I'll let you know....
