    How do you start a new garden plot?

    I've never really looked into it before, as I've done raised beds or pots instead. Easy peasy. I want to attempt a more old fashioned garden, but nothing fancy & probably not fully right n proper either. Haven't decided on size, will measure it out soon. I've read 12-14in deep for first...

    Strongest fruit trees for my area??

    So now that I've made 3 out of the 6 new paddocks, I realize I need to put in shade/shelter for my sheep. I'd like to use fruit trees for this, apple and pear. Only ones I'll eat, lol. But they need to be dwarf or real small and super disease resistant. I cannot be spraying them, ever, with...

    Quick heat question!

    Could a 250watt heat bulb heat an enclosed plastic greenhouse to 55 when outdoor temps are 25-35? I got ducklings using the outlet in the shed, so can't plug in the electric heater to it as well. It'll blow, house needs rewiring... Trying to find an alternative. I want to move the plants...

    Bit of a sad day

    Ugh, always a hidden low during a good streak, should of seen it coming! Went to see my horse to try out saddles. Three in all, 2 looked promising and we were tacking one up to do a test ride in before deciding. He started acting up, pooped, pawing the ground, then got a lot more animated...

    I want to visit the wild coastal horses, anyone else?

    My gelding is a Corolla wild horse, from Corolla NC. There are 4 breeds there. They are all so pretty. Hope to visit Corolla to take pictures of them. One day, if I won the lotto, I would join the effort to preserve the breed and own a breeding mare or two. Pictures gotten from the net...
