My hops arrived in a nice neat box less than a week after I ordered them. I immediately opened them up, took a quick pic and uploaded them to instagram. Here they are still in the box (and sans filter).
I hadn’t yet picked up my gardening essentials to plant them, so I headed on over for some planting mix, some organic fertilizer and some small planter pots.
Here’s what they look like now that they’re planted. (l to r Liberty, Glacier, Centennial, Zeus)
Glacier measures 7 1/2″ with five bines (+ one tiny bine if you wanna count it too)
Centennial measures 4 1/2″ with eight bines. It’s kinda short but full.
Zeus measures 6″ with eleven bines. He’s the fullest including three small sprouts about 2″ or so each.
Here’s another shot from Day 1 which shows them in the mid-afternoon sun.
If you have any advice on growing or harvesting hops be sure to drop me a line.
