Hopefully the weather starts getting warmer so the hops can start growing! Below is a little diagram of how the hops will grow. In the ground I have a 10 - 15 ft pole. Coming down from the top of the pole is rope. The rope is spiked into the ground right next to the hop plants. When the hop plants are about 5 - 6 inches out of the ground, they will be nudged over a bit so they can start climbing up the ropes.
I will keep posting pictures of the growth throughout the summer.
