I didn't read through all the posts to hopefully not repeating someone here. We work at a large commercial green house and come early-mid June they throw out all the rootbound sad left overs in what they have termed a dump party. Some years there are thousands of plants (lots of petunias:() I know these particular people would love to see someone come and make use of them and would give a screaming deal but the one concern would be that plants are super root bound and may be permanently disadvantaged as far as production goes. Anyhoo if you were to reach out to local GH's in your area I bet you could work out some late season deals. Also this outfit quits watering and a lot of them just die in place so you may want to make that contact now to assure that does not happen.

Watched and listened to many interviews, podcasts vid's etc. on bit coin and bar none, Andreas is the most fluent and eloquent spokesman for bitcoin. His interviews on Joe Rogans podcast are good. London Real had a great interview with him a couple of weeks ago but in this speech and Q&A he is on his A game!

This is helpful for what we are planing here in the near future. We are turning our far flung annual gardens to perennials and moving the annuals closer to the house where the gray water will help to irrigate. Thanks for the drawing

Daniel Vitalis' conversation with Dave Asprey has some great input on this subject (as well as being a great conversation in whole). Watch the whole thing if you can but starting at minute 42 they directly address the domestication of veg and fruit and its affects.

I'm a timberframer guy from montana, We work a lot with reclaimed barn beams from the mid west where home steaders would cut down native forest and build their barn from the resultant trees. I can attest they were not hesitant to use white pine for structural barn timbers. Not to sure about 1x and 2x lumber but I bet if you painted the ends like mentioned above (old latex paint is the ticket) and let it sit a year decked off the ground you would have some good stuff there.

Macerate roots or Blossoms in vodka (couple days for blossoms, week or two for roots) for a simple bitters. These added to whiskey sours, gin fizzes, and other citrus based cocktails are dee-lightful. Health tonic/cocktail anyone?

We are planning on building a RMH this summer to replace our circa 1984 burnt out wood stove so signing up for minionship seems a natural next step, also I think the fellow who mentioned a relationship with local firedepartment as an asset and possible access to monitoring equip. seems like a great idea. Heading to Bozeman this weekend for a RMH workshop, let me know what the next step is. Scott
Welcome Darren, We have 6 acres of mixed pasture which varies 3 to 7% grade all of which is flood irrigated. Without going into the details of our place do you have any general comments on the potential cautions and benefits specific to flood irrigation. We get water from April through August and other wise it is fairly dry, our annual rainfall for our part of Montana averages 12 inches. Hoping this is not just too general of a question!
