Wow, Karen, good for you on all fronts. We have wrestled with the AI thing, good for you for getting it done. And congrats on the kitchen. The dream progresses.
Jeremy, you've come to the right place. We're farmers, gardeners and homesteaders, we don't know the meaning of the word 'tired'. Actually, that might be the only word we know the meaning of..... but we're glad you're here. Welcome aboard.
I just found this group and sounds like alot of what I am interested in and want to do. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions for everyone. Hope you don't get tired of me! :)
I completed my AI class this week so I will be able to breed my cows without the need of a bull around the farm. I have to say, I enjoyed the class very much.
And, **ta-da*** I passed my final inspection for my domestic kitchen license so I will be able to make breads and jellies to sell at the Farmer's Market this year. Can't wait to get started!
Congratulations Sam! That is awesome news about your writing gig. I have signed up for their newsletter so I am sure I'll be reading your articles.
Congrats on the writing job, Sam!
Aquaponics is going great! We have ours in a PVC greenhouse so we can control extreme conditions. In the winter we use heaters to keep the water warm and in the summer we use a water cooler to keep temps below 100%. So our greenhouse growing season is all year for things like lettuce & some other veggies. Our water never drops below 70 or goes above 90. Tilapia do very well here. I breed Nile and sell the fry to other aquapons, so it pays for itself.
Got my first outside writing gig. I am going to be a regular columnist for the American Preppers Network. I'll be writing two weekly articles on Homesteading and How to get started in Preparations. I'm looking forward to it.
Welcome aboard, Sheri. You are in the right place. We go through spells where we talk a lot, like winter and rainy days, and times of relative quiet.
How is the aquaponics gardening working out for you? We have some Tilapia, bluegill and catfish. We have one aquaponics garden in our garage for winter growing and because the Tilapia don't like the cold. We're building our outdoor one that we will move our bluegill and catfish to because they can handle the cold better.
Good luck with all your classes, etc. Please do share. We love to swap stories around here while we're cleaning the dirt out from under our fingernails.
Thank you, Karen! I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone. :)
Welcome Sheri! Glad to have you here with us. We've all been a little quiet lately but that comes with farming/homesteading/growing this time of year.
Classes and workshops have been a big part of our farm income. Every year our classes get bigger. This year I am actually booked every weekend until July. It sounds like you are well on your way to success!
Again, welcome. Glad to have you here!
