Hi Elizabeth, Thanks for the friend invite. I left Mansfield in 1991 and never looked back. I grew up living behind John Simpson Middle School. Now i have a mini-farm out in the country and loving it. Im still in the design stages of builting my system, I have 6 IBC totes and a 20X40 greenhouse. Im hoping to get thinks flowing this fall. Talk to ya later.
We have been here since April last year, meeting and greeting self caterers who stay for a week at a time, only summer... (busyish) only Saturday is busy for me. So lots of time on my hands and lots of old barns here.
Perfect scenario for AP...I have loads of timber... my plan is to build a 3 meter wooden fish tank and line it with a 3m X 5 m pond liner (3000 liters I think), which should allow me to grow 9m X 1m area...same again, use what I have available. I know there is a trout farmer somewhere in the area...will use those when I find him. Cannot speak much French so the challenges are many. I have been taking notes from an Australian guy...Murray Hallam..
