I love to grow stuff, and have wanted to grow hops for a few years now, next year is the year.
I just moved into my new and hopefully last house in Monument, CO, and they will start my landscaping late this week or early next. I know it is to late to get anything going this year, so I will plan for next spring.
I am having a fence put in just like this one

complete with the wire mesh. the idea is to plant a few at the fence poles and train them to run along the length.
The fence in the picture is a shared fence and the wire is on my neighbors side. The run I want to use will be a stand alone section putting the wire on the planting side, and not pissing my neighbor off.
Not sure if I will install beds, use a large container, or just throw them in the ground. This all depends on what happens to the soil during the landscaping. The planting area will be prepped and hydro-seeded.
So, as I make my plans, sell my wife on the idea, and decide on what hop to plant first, any input from the collective is needed and appreciated.
Last, the run of fence I will have available is over 100 feet long.
