This weekend I made a hopyard. It has four 20' poles with 16' above grade. I used 1/8" galvanized and coated cabling for the top run and guy wires. I'll be streaming 1/4" twine down for the bines to train on. I'll be planting 6 hop plants this spring - 2 between each set of poles offset on either side. This was a frumpy flower bed that the previous owners of the home let go - it was filled with hostas which I dug out this weekend before setting up the hoppoles. I think it turned out well. I'll be planting: • 2 Cascades • 1 Centennial • 1 Brewers Gold (US) • 1 Chinook • 1 Magnum (US) Planting will be around May time frame with harvest mid- August.
