I am in need of a more permanent hop garden and need a little advice. I was thinking of putting four 12'-14' - 4"x4" posts and making an "archway" of sorts. I can not do anything super hard to remove, since one half of the archway will be on the regulating districts land. I am going to put wire connecting the two on the same side and then having the hops grow up that wire and then across to the other wire. Do you think this would give the hops enough length to grow? The two wires will be roughly 10' apart. How much length is enough to get a good yield?

Here are some pics of my current setup, sweet stick I know. Oh and that stick is about 5 feet tall and this is my first year growing.
