Finding new growth after being gone for a day

I went up to Austin on Saturday for our monthly Tour and Tasting Day at Independence Brewing and I love coming back to see all the new growth that has occurred while I'm gone, even if it was only for a day.

The longest bine on the Cascade that I broke the tip off has really starting develop a lot of burrs all along it. The growth rate of three bines growing up the twine on the left side of the pot has really taken off and they're only a foot from the top now. Some bines that I started on the third twine from the front of the pot have also done well and are about a third of the way up.

The growth rate of the main Nugget bine on the right-side has slowed and has not yet reached back up to the top since I last lowered the twine on Thursday. However, the plant has been busy growing lots of side shoots off the lower parts of the main bines and some have started climbing the other twines pretty quickly.

I've currently still got the drip irrigation set to turn on at 9:15am for 15mins every 24 hours. The temperature is starting to creep into the upper 90's during the day with no rain and little cloud cover in the forecast for this week. I may have to adjust that water again if the pots start drying out.
