That sounds good, Kathy, large yards in quiet neighbourhoods! I enjoy the countryside enormously but I think I´d feel lost after so many years in apartments.
Thanks, all, for the suggestions on what to do with my "bare patch". A greenhouse would be nice, but my kids have 6 of them with all the winter greens I need. The shed in the picture is my wood shed (I built). It used to be the site of a hen house, but I have never wanted animals--chickens or goats, etc.
I'm thinking trees, perhaps 4 of them--fruit and nut. You've got me thinking chestnut. I need a new apple tree and a plum. I don't have an English walnut either.
I've already hauled 30 wheelbarrow loads of dirt with about 10 more to go, I think. I'm getting the dirt from a huge berm mound across the road. It can't be mowed and is/was an eyesore.
Kathy, I´m a town person, and the neighbours are mostly easy here. If the apartments are reasonably sound proof there´s a certain rhythm and comfort hearing the neighbours move about , knowing I can ask them if I need help. They´ll ask for help too. Most of the time this block feels like a small village.
Then again, I could never afford driving lessons or a car, so I can´t move to a place without public transport.
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.
