No picture, because my camera has problems, but the Cascades reached over to the Mt. Hood twine and was trying to strangle it. I had to cut the sidearm off of the Cascades bine. Once the cones put on a little weight, the sidearms won't have as much reach.

It's biggest problem with twining in an inverted V. Next year, I think I'll move the posts & run cables, so the hops can grow straight up and maintain their distance.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

It's sad really. You try your best to raise em right, and then you get that call late at night from the police. Yes, it's true, your darling hop babies ASSAULTED another one in the night.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
