We have begun the process of growing our own home brew ingredients. I have begun sowing Calypso barley, a winter variety. No proof that will survive in my area but I'm hopeful. I planted it in a lot of different areas. I'll keep you updated on how it does here.

Here are a few pics of the random seeding I did around some neglected krater gardens. Basically I dug them and then just left them to see how they did. Some vegetation now.
