I finally got out to check mine. Nice growth for the brewers gold and cascades in NE PA. I need to weed, toss some compost, and mulch. Other then water, not much else during the year. The soil is pretty bad construction fill, but a lot of compost fixes that up.
I'm skipping building the trellis and going back to just training them onto the chain link fence. Bines balled up at the top of the trellis, mixed the 2 plants, and I was not able to easily lower rig as planned. Also, solar array installed in the fall would be shaded by trellis, so solar wins and hops go back to chain link. I got same production both years, so works out not having to build/maintain yet other structure ;-) . Chain link is simple, gold goes left, cascades to the right.
