I just did some major & much needed maintenance on my hop garden today. I spent about 4 hours digging out the grass & weeds & plants that've grown through the mulch I put down, trimming my hop plants leaves & scraggly weak shoots, and laying down 2 more bags of mulch. It looks 1000% better now.
In some weird cosmic kind of strange timing, I was asked for updated pics on the trellis & whatnot, so here they are:

My Chinook guys:
My Centennial guys:
These are all first year plants, and all have started to produce cones, Especially one of the Chinook plants. It's got cones exploding out all over the place. I will make another post with some noted pics.
