We manage a 40 acre wildlife area of the Texas Hill Country in the Edwards Plateau at about 3030 ft above sea level. The region is notable for its karst topography and tall rugged hills of limestone. The terrain throughout the region is punctuated by a thin layer of topsoil and a large number of exposed rocks and boulders, making the region very dry and prone to flash flooding. Native vegetation in the region includes various yucca, prickly pear cactus, native grasses and wildflowers. The predominant trees in the region are Ashe Juniper, Shin Oak and Texas Live Oak. Soil is alkaline consisting of caliche and clay.

Great suggestions everyone!

I planted yarrow to use as a blood stop though it didn't like it here and finally gave up last year.  Thought it was a tall plant not the tiny thing that grew.

Dear hubby is on blood thinners so I have everything I can find, lots of tea bags.

Our daughter is a Vet pharmaceutical rep and I have lots of wrap though I am not sure what it is for, maybe horses?  I like the kind they use at the doctors office, maybe it is called sports wrap?  Stick to itself. And lots of gloves.

I put super glue on the list along with some other stuff.

Tomorrow,  I am taking an inventory of our medical kit.  When I originally started making it I used a list from a EMT kit. Then added things that we normally use.  I have some items that our dog might need.

I been adding herbs and essential oils to it.

Any suggestion on must have items?

This is from a refill kit from Ebay though it may not have some needed items:

They might love any tender new growth.  

This year the deer have eating everything ... tomato leaves, bell pepper leaves, squash leaves.  Then they started in on the walking onions and rose bushes.  

When they started eating the rose bushes I put up a string fence.  It has been several weeks and it is still keeping them out.

Daniel, here are a couple of threads that might help.

I thought daicon radishes might help break up the soil do I found this thread:

I was thinking that there was a recent discussion related to your topic.

If all you want to do is keep them alive until spring that might work.

I bring in my lemon balm that is in a hanging basket every year. Well, last year I had a gout attack and could not walk for a week.  Poor thing died because no one watered it.

If I remember that discussion correctly there was something said about not enough light indoors.
I'm experimenting with Egyptian Walking Onions in hanging baskets.  So far I have five that are about 4" tall and 12 more that I just planted yesterday.  

I only have 3 hanging pots available so I might try some pots in my laundry room.

I am sure I will need to harvest often and replant.

I don't think they will do their walking in the hanging baskets so I plan to harvest the bulbis and plant those.

The deer decided to eat my onions so this is why I am experimenting.

Julie, welcome to permies!

Here is the result of a google search for property management companies for Lee/Moore/Harnett counties.

Several of them looked like they might be able to help you.
