Neglected but not forgotten

I've been neglecting this blog, but not my hop plants. In fact, there's been a resurgence of growth over the past few weeks. The plants are clearly enjoying the much cooler weather and they're looking much bushier and happier. When we returned from our trip to the Pacific Northwest, I could see over a foot or two of new growth on multiple bines and side arms which I had to detangle and get wrapped around the twine properly. And along with the new growth came a bunch of new hops! Some of them are looking quite large and better the then hops that developed earlier.
