well hello from the other coast out west. haven't been gardening long a few yrs now and each yr I add more to the garden and plant more varieties. I live on a small farm started out just having horses then added raising pigs for bacon and other cuts,then came the chickens gotta have the full meal deal then came the donkeys to protect the chickens or was it the donkeys came before the chickens. Thinking about getting a cow for both milk and beef breed her every yr for the calf to raise up for the beef and during that time milk her. I have a strong need to eat fresh healthy happy food.
