I finished ungrading my hopyard yesterday. I very proud of this, in spite of the eye rolls from Mrs. Flytyer concerning how far to the darkside I’ve gotten. below are some pictures ( If I figure out how to post them). First year I planted 6 rhizomes not expecting much production I just wanted to get them established. I did a pair of tripods 10’ tall which the Brewers Gold out grew. 2.2 wet 11.6 dry first harvest.
New structure is 16’ tall with each base in 250 lbs. of concrete. A wire will be strung at the top and the bases are jointed so the whole thing can be laid down with two people. 38’ apart with room for 3 more hills for a total of 6. Hopefully if I can find a source This year I had Northern Brewer, Brewers Gold, and Williamette. I would like to add Fuggle, UK Kent Goldings, and Cluster.
