My hops came in a week ago and we still had snow so I put them in the fridge for a week.
Friday night I planted them in pots to get them started inside until there is no more frost problems, which should be a few more weeks.

Saturday morning I got up at 4:30am and headed to the gym to meet my running group. I then ran 20 miles. Well, ok, I only ran 19 and walked the last mile.
My legs were cramping up to bad and I did not want to run thru it and pull something. I just got off a 2 week rest because of doing just that.
Then we went for lunch and came home to work on the hop carden.
By hand and with a shovel I removed the sod from part of my yard along side the driveway going to my back barn. I dug up a spot about 2'x34'.
Then I dug three holes about 15"x24" and filled them with concrete. Then stuffed a piece of 4" c-40 PVC at 5' long into the concrete and leveled them out.
I will next add another piece of the PVC to the tops of these. The next pieces will be 4"x10'. I will run some cable from pole to pole and then run some down to the bottom of the fence post to help keep them from moving to much. And then will run stringers from the cable down to the ground when I plant the plants.
I will update as I go.
