The Hop Vines

“I’ve got some hops if you want some”

I’ve always been interested in growing hops, and I finally got my chance this year. My neighbor Dave came by in January with some roots that I was skeptical about.

We put them in a pot and just let them sit there. We waited.

Hooray, it isn’t blackberry root or ivy!

Now we must figure where to put them. They started to grow up the tomatoes reaching out for something to climb on. We had a couple dozen feet of the rope left so…

With a little sawing and screwing we have a fine hop trellis.

Founds some logs… All taken to dump and we are “done” with the timber.

And guess what? We have a new layer in the flock.

Until next time, Happy Gardening!
