I got the telephone poles installed in one of our older garden areas, north of the vineyard. Last year, our rural electric co-op dropped-off the two 25+ ft poles. I’m happy to say that they will be in use, shortly. Right now, they tower above the ground, like two lone sentinels.
A few days ago, the hops we ordered arrived and now that the poles are in the ground, we are waiting for a nice day plant. We have 6 hop rhizomes to plant around each pole. Yesterday, after setting the poles, I measured and flagged where the rhizomes will go – equal distance apart, 7’6″ from the pole.
