I went out last week to start training my hops to climb the twine. When I got there, they had already found the twine and started climbing on their own. Intelligent hops, they didn't even need to be trained on what to do. :)

So I guess you train them the same direction that your toilet water swirls? :D

Watch out Bug, you may wake up one day and the hops are standing over you with a knife :twisted:

Holy Crap!! My second year hops are already to the top of my 14' trellis(Crystal and Chinook)!! And it appears that they may be making cones already!? I live in SW Virginia. My cascade and centennial are pretty darn wimpy. Fuggles are doing OK. Pics to follow.
