I noticed some weeds starting to sprout in the hop pots at lunch and when I went to pull them out, I saw some hop sprouts already sticking up from the soil. I didn't even plant my rhizomes until March 28th last year and here it is only March 12 and I've already got first growth! Glad to see they made it through our "cold" Houston winter. I'll move the pots around the corner to the south side of the house this weekend so they can start getting more sun. I should probably give them some fertilizer too. It also means I definitely need to starting thinking about my trellis design for this year and weather I really want to plant more hops or not.
