Well I have not posted in over 4 months. So far there have been big changes. We packed up and moved to the panhandle of Texas. We moved to be closer to my Grandma who is getting older and does need the help. She gave us a house in the town of Higgins. I would say that we have little less than one acre here. I love farming and everything about it. Me and my wife decided this week to make a go at farming on less than one acre. I’m going to order a book on mini farming. The book claims that you can farm on just 1/4 an acre. We have decided that tomorrow is the day to start cleaning the yard and lots up. Start planning where garden beds will go. We’re going to build some beds with tunnels on them so that we garden through the winter. My wife wants an herb garden, so I’m to buy her a few aero gardens (they’re hydroponic). Back during June and July I was bummed that my garden didn’t work out for the season. Today I know it will work out and turn out much better. Different land, new start. To mark the occasion, i bought two chickens. Monday I will buy 10 more. I’m sure you are asking yourself, what am I going to do on this mini-farm? Well, heres a few things:
1) Raise chickens for eggs and meat.
2) Raise goats for milk, meat, and breading.
3) Gardening-Raised beds, traditional beds, container, and hydroponic.
You have to have a plan for anything to work out. I have failed before because of a lack of a well written plan. Well I won’t be making that mistake again. As for today, I will go and do some more planning. Bye!
