Damn! You got me there!


Update on my hops (because I know you're all on the edges of your seats):

My Cascade I planted last fall is doing well, its about three inches out and sprouting some leaves.
My Goldings is just peeking through the soil, which is funny because it was the esmallest of my rhizomes that I planted this year.
The other Cascade and Fuggles aren't showing any signs yet, but they've only been in the ground just over a week.

The Centennial........

Both of the transplants are coming up also. So that rocks. I'll have 5 plants this year instead of 3.

Also do you guys cut yours back to just the 3 or 4 strongest bines or let them all go? I've let them all go in the past and am thinking about trimming them back this year.

I forgot to add this picture. Taken by my wife. I think it's awesome so I'm putting it up really big. Deal with it.

Damn Lufah! What the hell have you been feeding them, and how long have they been in the ground? That's some nice growth!
I've just got a couple tiny little 2" sprouts, and my biggest plant is the cascade which is maybe 4" tall. Of course, three of the four I only planted 1 1/2 weeks ago.

Feeding them bonemeal and bloodmeal. The plants in the pictures are 3 years old.

Ok, I'll bite...

What the heck is bonemeal and bloodmeal? Is that what you're left with after JP makes his skin suit?

I picked mine up at Lowes. Should be fairly easy to find.

Yep, I am on the same feeding regiment! We'll see how that works out. I already have fuggles that are over 2' tall! The funny part is the temp has been getting down to about 20F at night and they are still doing great.
