    My Magnum. Also coming up are Goldings, Cascade, Fuggles, Centennial, Chinook, Mt hood, Sterling, and a local 'heritage' variety that I rescued from a hedge.
    I'm covered in beer.

    That looks suspiciously like something else. Are hops related to cannabis.

    The two are very closely related.

    My Centennial and Magnum are coming up nicely. A mole stole my Chinook rhizome 3 days after I planted it, I'm not even kidding. The Columbus and the Cascade didn't make it, I procrastinated about a week before I put them in the ground and I'm paying the price for it. I'm actually surprised that anything made it.

    no photos, but a couple of my zeus vines are at the top of my 12' trellis already (2nd year plants) pretty impressed by these weeds.

    Just an update to my earlier post, I originally thought my Cascade was done, but it actually pulled through and is thriving. It's grown 6 ft. in the past month and is looking great. Just a bit of mildew at the bottom but nothing major. I ordered some more rhizomes in mid-May(Nugget, Zeus, and another Cascade) and they are all doing well. The Nugget seems to grow as prolifically just as the Cascade. I'll post some pics after I get my hop line up, right now I have them strung up a tomato stake.

    Very nice everyone!

    Harvested our Chinook a few days ago.



    Had a really tough season, between the crazy heat, and beetles our Nugget & Fuggles did not fair too well. It's a bummer, but nature has it's way from time to time.

    Ended up with almost five pounds total (wet weight), in addition to a bit less of Centennial gathered already, which will do nicely for out Harvest Ale this year.
