Forgive me for I have been negligent of my brewer brothers and sisters on this forum. Too much work and the temptations of other projects..... (think building an RV starting with a Peterbilt....no not yet, but lots of research......but I digress)

Good news is I have NOT forgotten to brew, or drink, the noble brew. 10 Gallons of German Ale and 10 Gallons of IPA in the fermenters.... and as a side note, and on topic with this thread:

Very nice re-use of the old playset! Are they planted by the ladders? Definitely update with pics once they fill out, it should be pretty.

patience! what was your procedure for planting? did you fertilize? how long in the ground? one of mine took almost 4 weeks to come up at all. several of mine were only 8 inches tall until I started watering daily then they took off. still alot of growing season left man. and remember the first year is all about getting established.

my talles one just went from about 10 inches tall to about 7 feet in less than 2 weeks also, so don't count those little guys out yet. if they are green they are growing.

but I would give them a nice 6 inch mulch of compost, leave a little space between the mulch and the actual bine, or area where the bine is going to come out.

My cascade are acting similar and growing way slower than the Zeus.

Zeus are taking over my balcony and I only got 1 bine so I guess I'm lucky that one is doing well.

Also depends on the variety. Some are just much slower than others.

So I had two potted willamete hops in containers that I gave up on b I thought the rhizomes were bad and I has been rainy at night and in the 80 during the day and I just left them to through away later.

I go out today to through them away and I have to sprouts fully leafed and about 2 inches tall so you were right my to throw in the towel so soon

I just ordered a lot of Chinook rhizomes from bcrosbyhops.com

I had two rhizomes a couple weeks ago ordered from Freshops and they grew for a bit, then died. Not sure but I think I failed to plant them deep enough and then added too much fertilizer. I tried to revive them but they are toast.

Freshops is out of Chinook so I found an alternate source in bcrosbyhops.com

These Chinook will be going into 7gal pots - plenty of room for them to grow for two seasons before transplanting them.

I should upload shots of my 5 year old mess of Cascade and Centennials. An illustration of what happens if you never prune your hops and let them grow for this many years.
