I planted a few rhizomes of Cascade about a week ago, nothing doing yet though.

I only have three plants.  One is 2 ft tall, one is 3ft tall, and another is 8 ft tall.  I do need to prune off some of the excess shoots though.  Plants grow well early here, but towards the end of summer there is just not enough sunlight.

I ran three lines of twine for each rhizome from the ground to the eaves of the house, which is about 18 ft.  Last year none of the plants made it to the eaves, but I think this year it will be a formality.  I told my wife that I may need to run more twine this year and she gave me the stare of death.

I've got some Challenger, Target, Northdown and Goldings in on my allotment, all of which seem to be doing well and climbing the fence. I'm in the UK, so can only lay my hands easily on European hops. Going to grow some noble hops next year.

I know the feeling when the s/o gives you the stare of death because you want to grow/acquire more brewing related stuff.
