Quick update on the hops. Glenn and I transferred them to the planter Saturday afternoon. We were able to get some decent top soil and I mixed in some Miracle-Gro planting soil and potting soil. The wooden slat arbors on the sides of the planter are repusposed wood pallets. It adds a nice look and will support the lines to allow the hop bines to grow up and eventually over the yard. I hope to dose the plants with plant food in the next few days. I'll update everyone again soon.

|Newport is growing too|
|Willamette is growing. One sprout has broken the surface, but there is also several more we found when we transferred it to the planter.|
