Another Hoosier here! I'm just learning, and having to go slowly but I stumbled on this forum and had to introduce myself and let you know you weren't alone!
I have a good-sized corner lot in a southern Castleton neighborhood. We have six raised veggie beds, 2 large herb beds and a (small) strawberry patch. We also have 2 apple and 1 peach tree, 6 blueberry bushes, a grape vine and 2 blackberry bushes. All organic, except when the county sprays for mosquitoes
Our newest addition (2 days ago) are 14 chicks! The goal is to end up with 6-8 laying hens (after sexing and mortality).
One thing I love to do--with little success--is to find wild berries, fruit &/or nut trees. I have found a beautiful Mulberry tree in a Pioneer Cemetery that I will be taking my kids to harvest in the next couple of weeks.
Oh, and springs. I love beautiful fresh water from a spring!
