And last week I realized I wasn't ready.
Here they come!! Hop vines climb twine toward by back deck
They are getting closer by the hour
But I'm ready for them this year!
Last year I attached blue spruce boughs to the deck railing and hops eventually covered them, making a lovely sunscreen. This year I erected a stylish structure made from western red cedar (top rail added yesterday) and have attempted to guide the vines with the use of twine runners.
I think I'm ready for a dozen approaching vines.
We shall see what we shall see.
