This is growing from Willamette #2, it doesn't look like its sister. Any ideas?

Willamette #1

That's what I was thinking. But growing out of the rhizome? I guess it's dead...

Yep. A rotted rhizome would be a fine home for dandelion roots.

You can wash it and put it in your salad (if it's still young). or grow a whole bunch of it and make dandelion wine!

(or just rip it out and leave it in the sun to die cause they they can make your yard look like crap)

That is what your hops look like now?
I hope you have a green house, because most hops are maturing now with bines over 12ft long. Yours are just starting out and I doubt they will have enough time to put away stores before frost, and definitely no crop this year.

Haha, I'll just pitch the bugger. I've got the one growing and 2 others that hopefully will produce something.

Thise guys are just establishing some roots this year. I'm going to transfer them (everything in the pots) to the ground/a raised bed in the fall.
