Whacking back the beast

Less than 2 months since the buds became visible in the dirt, with all the other plants in the garden just getting started, the monster is already set for its first trim.
 Go for it, Laars.
A pie-worth of stalks later, and I've meerly thinned it out enough to see two additional flower stalks about  burst onto the scene.
