We have been super busy out on the farm the last few months and it has been way too long since our last post. All of the string line has been hung and we managed to train all the plants. Most of the plant are well over halfway to the top of the 18 foot trellis and are looking pretty good. There have been some setbacks though. Our Zues hops got hit hard by downy mildew in the early spring and forced us to cut them back to the ground. You can tell by the photo that they are looking much better and making their climb to the top. We are also currently working on upgrading our irrigation system to incorporate fertigation. Needless to say the work is never ending and we always seen to be behind but we are getting there.
