Same question for everyone...?

For me, when attempting my third year of gardening last year, in the planning stages I came across Geoff Lawton, Jack Spirko and of course, Paul Wheaton videos on YouTube. I freakin love YouTube. Anyway, it was all downhill from there.



I also watched Paul Wheaton and found it through there. I agree with loving YouTube and the instructional videos. I am excited to get this winter over and start working hard. I wish we had a group who could help one another with farm projects. "Many hands make light work" or however the saying goes...I have found that if I try to help my brother or sister instead of trying to beat them at winning, we both win and succeed further than alone.

You can't be too far from our farm in Holt. Hope we can cross paths soon face to face. You mentioned you had animals, what are you running? Give us all a detailed description of what you're doing and what your place is like.

See ya,
Dan



I have a boar...waiting to get a couple of sows when I am ready. I have two goats, both bred and waiting for kids this spring. I have 6 mares, three pregnant and a stud. I have chickens, guinea hens, a turkey and some ducks. I also have some rabbits.

I am trying to get my farm self sustaining. I built a house in a three sided barn. It is almost too big and I find it harder to heat up in this bitter cold. I want to plant a big garden and start a 'you pick it'. Though it would be nice to have all of the money that others have, I find there are plenty of people out there who have little money like me. So I want to have affordable fruits and vegetables. I grew up in the big big city and now I have a hard time going back. I love the quiet of the country.

I am new here. I live near Kidder, about thirty miles East from St. Joseph. I have animals and I am hoping to get things going this spring with a garden. I am hoping to get some free classes going on my farm after I get some things built. So I will keep checking back on this thread and hope to share more information.
