Growing Hops - Day 16

My two hops plants that I'm growing for the Beyond the Pale Community Grow Hop seem to be doing well. The one that I almost killed has fully recovered and is slowly catching up to its sister. :)

I decided to run twine, zig-zagging, up the front of my house and train the hops onto it. I used small screw in hooks, but I may change them to long nails since the hooks bring the twine too close to the house, and may not allow the hops to wind around it properly.

Here are two pics. It's crazy how fast they're growing. The one on the left of each photo is the one I nearly killed, if that's not obvious. :)
