    Hops on May 16th, 2009

    In looking at the hops today I have several plants that have shoots that over seven feet tall.  I am seriously blown away by how fast they grow.  I swear that you could sit and watch them grow.  I took some of the other shoots and put them onto the trellis.  I am wondering if I need to run some more twine and stake it down to the south side of the plants.  In any case I like what I am seeing this year.

    I need to stake out the Avon hops soon.  The shoots are starting to get tall enough to need training.  I do need to get out their and weed and mulch everything.
