For comparison

For all you hop growers. This is Willamette growing in Mabton, photo taken this morning. My Willamettes are twice this big, in pots, and I hacked mine down about 3 weeks ago.

The grower probably "knocked them back" for harvest timing purposes. After consulting with my hop guy, I didn't trim my plants back this spring. I've got some monsters.

Jim- give me a heads up when you're in the area, it would be fun to have a beer with you.

Sounds like a plan. I wonder what instrument Steve plays for the Yakima Symphony Orchestra?

Having met him, I'd say that he specializes in playing your heart strings.

I'm way too low brow for the symphony. 

In what part of town do you reside?  I'm in West Valley.  I'm always up for getting together.

I live in the lower valley, just outside Zillah. Jim, give us a PM next time you're headed this way. There's a few biker friendly bars around here....

I have a lot of flexibility on Thursdays since it is my Friday.
