    Cascade, Centinnial and Nugget. If I have room for four I'll slide in Columbus. This should give me something for everything. Cool.



    I should do this. I keep saying I am going to start growing and never get around to it.

    I have room for three for sure. Maybe four but I doubt it. Nugget is a decent bittering hop for stouts, right?



    nugget is a great bittering for stouts, pale ales, ipas, ect.

    they should be fine. hardy little suckers.


    if you have rhizomes and don't have the time to plant, throw em in the fridge until you do. it puts them to sleep.

    yeah, very hardy, unless you water them with chloronated spa water they should be cool.

    I've been thinking about putting a rain barrel to drain my shed. I've though maybe I could water the garden. I'm not sure about using roof drained water for vegetables though.

    that's quite the pickle. maybe if you use a trash can people won't know it's for rain. Or put a sticker on it that says "Rendered Whale Oil, product of Japan" Even if it is a rain barrel what hippie would have that around?

    I'm planning on using roof drained water for my veggies this year (if it ever rains). The way I see it; it's an old roof, so most things that will leach out have already, and it's better than chlorinated city water.

    Don't worry about it, much worse stuff is coming down with the rain before it hits your roof if you live in an urban environment. It is a great way to reduce the use of clean drinking water, mitigate stormwater runoff and save a little cash. People have been doing this for centuries before we decided it was a novel idea.

    most of those people didn't have tar shingles though!
    but really, roof water is generally fine, and rainwater has craploads of nitrogen in it, so it is great to not let it go to waste.

    and ceannt.....just run the gutter into some old, rusted out chevy and nobody will think twice about it. no problemo.
