I have 4 2nd year plants. Two cascades and two fuggles. After planting the fuggles last year, I realized that they were not getting nearly as much sun as the cascades. Oh well no biggie. This was proven true when my 2011 harvest yielded 5.5 oz of cascades and 0.5 oz of fuggles.

But guess what! The first plant to find the twine this year was one of the fuggles! I cut back all the first shoots about 3 weeks ago. I have my two bines picked out on each plant. Wouldn't you know that one of my fuggle plants found the twine all by herself.

So along with my 2nd year plants, I have chinook and liberty plants that have all broken ground by now. The chinooks broke through in less than 2 weeks!

Some guys dream of taking their homebrewing professional... I dream of my very own hop farm. :drunk

The BEST way to dream! I'm saving up for a hot air balloon . . .
