Ok so never got around to building the big trellis that weekend, however finally finsihed up the two smaller ones this weekend.Great Carndog,
SWMBO saw your pics so now I'm having to build one similar this weekend and she has plans for two more My plans are 8'X16'X8'H should be interesting.
That's what she said!Randar: those chinooks are huge!
Seems pretty early for Valpo. Were the cones papery, sticky, and very aromatic?First year grower, harvested my Cascades on Sunday.
My Chinook, Cascade, Magnum, Nugget, and Newport all did visibly better than Goldingx2, Fugglex2, Mt Hood, Crystal, and Willamette. My Centennialx2 were somewhere in between.IL hopgrower. Everything I have is sun burned. I thought it would be a terrible year for me. I haven't been home a lot and I visited my place this weekend and I"ve got new growth. I know it's to late for a great yield, but I'm surprised. My Chinnook is amazing, my Cascade is a close second, but the rest of my hops are struggling. Still time for some, but I'm not having everyone elses success. Sigh...
damn you all!!! I just don;t get enough light anywhere on my property. 3rd year hops and not a single cone. The vines grow like mad, but no cones at all.
Better place to start than all flowers and no vines... an N-P-K soil test kit can be found at almost any garden store, or any store that has a garden department (like home depot).If hops are like most other plants, youve gotta fertilize with the right balance or you'll get all vine and no flowers.
