Ha! Yeah, I actually thought it would be neat to brew my own IPA with hops from the backyard but, there is a lot for me to learn yet. I don't even know when the hops are right for picking and using.

That's funny Taxed. Marijuana isn't a big deal out here yet, because it is still technically illegal, there are large amounts being grown by cartels from south of the border right here in Oregon on Bureau of Land Management land.

If they would just wise up and legalize & tax it, more money could come in and the black market wouldn't exist for the losers hiding out in the woods.

Plant a money crop. Marijuana has made billionairs south of the border. And look at the bright side, if you get caught you'll get a roof over your head free medical and food and a rec room secound to none! (Plus alot of other fringes)

Ha! I'm trying! I planted two Cascade Hops plants last year and was told that they're not good for much until at least the second year. I believe them now as I feel I have two aliens sprouting out of the ground already-don't know if I'll have the room for them to spread-lol!

I wonder if growing real food for people to eat will be the breakthrough of the 22nd century?
