      > After discussion with Brother Jeff, I've decided to dry the crop using the "Whole Stalk Hanging Method". When the plant is deemed to have grown enough in size, it is but at the base and hung inverted in a ventilated place for a minimum of 3 weeks; probably considerably longer than that. I've discovered that fallen leaves that blow into my garage, tend to dry out to a beautiful brown colour.
