I live in a canyon in the Foothills on about an acre, mostly flat. I'm retired on a limited budget with a compulsion to grow WAY more food than I can eat. I experiment with all kinds of stuff but my follow through hasn't always been the greatest. I've got lots of fruit trees, rain gutter garden, raised beds, sub irrigated barrels, and 30 low chill apple trees from Kuffle orchard arriving in February. I plan to espalier the apples in horizontal cordons. I've also converted my 20 x 40 in ground swimming pool into a pond with lots of plants, mosquitofish, bluegill, catfish, koi, and goldfish longer than my hand. It's been one year since the last dose of chlorine went in and it's been a major learning experience. AND I wish I'd done it ten years ago. I raise sheep and rabbits for meat. I used to do all my own butchering but now only do the rabbits unless my daughter's in town to help. I have two dogs and two cats, one daughter, and two grandsons. The house has solar electric. Now I'm trying to figure out how to retro fit some kind of earth tube set up for summer cooling. Would also like it to help keep a greenhouse warn enough for avocado, papaya. mango, moringa, tomatoes, peppers,and melons.
