Green growth

The plant on the left is the same one from the picture that I posted on April 13th. You can see that the pinkish shoots are now entirely green and the tallest have grown to about 10 inches. I used the straw from my barley last year to mulch over all of the hop plants for insulation during the winter as well as future moisture retention and weed control. The plants in each row are spaced three feet apart from each other and there are 1,700 plants in total (i.e., 17 rows with 100 plants in each).
