New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Growing veggies using recycled water.
    Here is the growing and watering system we've used for the past 6 years, we just pop in the seeds and wait for the things to grow.

    Its really low maintenance and self watering, we use all the water from the washing machine and the shower, we always use environmentally friendly soap and no chemicals.

    Any excess water is directed to the garden via the overflow from the tubs.

    Its tomato season and Ive just taken about 4kgs off the plants.

    The tubs are down what they call the dead side of the house, back in the 70's when this house was built they had to stay 6' off the boundary for some reason?

        I think the reason may have been to prevent the spread of fire from some maniac who might be inclined to play with fire.

          So there are no maniacs around now as we can build on the boundary line?

            Not where I live. And yes, we do have plenty of maniacs up here.
