As predicted, the centennial is growing like crazy. In fact the centennial has sent out a running, so now I’ve got two centennial vines trying to grow. I’m tempted to cut the running and move it to another spot in the hop garden, but I haven’t decided.
The golding is finally starting to grow, though not as vigorously as the centennial. Right now the golding has one vine that is about mid-chest in height. I’ve got a feeling that most of the cone production this year will be from the centennial. But who knows.

You know I noticed the leaf difference as well, now that the plants are getting bigger. My guess is that it’s going to stay that way.
Looking again, it’s interesting that the leaves of the Golding look so different from the Centennial. Will they stay that way?
