With a warm winter, I am already having my hop plants come to life! My second year Nugget is growing very quickly and the Goldings (2nd year) is growing nicely. I also picked up some Willamette and Sterling. I’m planning on having a great shady spot underneath the hops to relax in this summer. Here are some pics
two weeks later:
and now the Nugget
This is a tremendous difference from last year, which didn’t see sprouts until may/june. I’m thanking a warm winter and a pleasant conversation about being happy hops every morning.
