Both hop plants are alive and well

The first Nugget bine is now 15" tall with a couple of more poking up from the mulch. Meanwhile, the first few Cascade sprouts have finally broken through the surface of the mulch. The Cascade rhizome was pretty small with no visible shoots whereas the Nugget rhizome was much larger with several growing shoots when I planted them, so its no real surprise that the Cascade is that much further behind. However, they're now both growing and on their way. Now comes the task of keeping them happy and growing during the scorching hot and humid summers of Houston.
