Hops. Holy Cow

This is my first year growing hops. Got Cascade, planted in a perforated bucket for drainage and crown control. They have a southerly exposure and are pretty much just rocking along right now.

I thought I'd share with you this pic. See the two black marks? That's one day's growth up the rope. Damn, these things grow faster than I did as a teenager!

I know, there's no sense of scale in this photo, but that's 3 inches of growth in 24 hours! (or about an 1/8 of an inch per hour!)

Damn, that's kind of like "jack and the bean stock." Will you be climbing it any time soon? LOL!

Good Luck,

David Lester
