Nice place , Randall.

Your shed in the back would make a nice chicken coop or small barn for a couple of goats. I've thought about getting a couple of alpine goats, male and female. However, some goats can produce two gallons of milk per day, which I wouldn't know what to do with all that milk except give em to my neighbors.

As for your round area, how abt building a small green house with solar panels? That way you can have year round vegetables. .... and a small windmill can generate energy too.

Like Plinius, I'm also a little Jealous of the land and locations most of you have, but I'm also glad you have it.

Randy, does anyone need to get rid of fill dirt?  Then you could level it an do anything - kitchen garden, fruit treesm shade trees, etc.   I had the opposite situation, an unexplained berm.  It went into my raised beds.

I second Chris.  Beautiful place, rustic and peaceful.

Look at that! All that space and not a car in sight!

With this nice weather we're having, I began tackling a backyard project I've been pondering for awhile. Here's a photo taken this AM.  At one time, this spot had a semi-sunken above ground swimming pool with a deck. After the kids were gone, I took it down and made a pond. That lasted  10 years. I buried rocks and filled it with dirt (which has since sunk), and tried to make some sort of wild garden out of it. It became too wild.                           I'm now adding more dirt (after burning it down) by the wheelbarrow loads. The question is, NOW WHAT?! Any suggestions?

I´m jealous, such a wonderful place, Kathy!

Daniel, lol. They never tested it.
Stray dogs never show up. Deer, occasionally, run into it. Possum go under it but that's about it.

I think an electric fence would tend to set boundaries for kids :-)

But seriously it sounds like a wonderful place.

I love lots of quiet!

The woods sound especially wonderful to kids.

Spud, it's a wonderful place if you like a lot of quiet :)
It's a perfect place for children. The gkids have been free to roam at will from the time they could walk. We're fenced with electric to keep most things out. It also set the boundaries for the kids. When they were very small they thought the woods were so large that a person would never be found if they got lost in them.
