    I am about to move into a little old three bdrm on an acre out on the plains of south central Montana. I have lots of plans for gardening and small livestock.
    I thought it made sense to start an account here instead of just lurking and reading. I certainly have many questions that I will be asking as I get my start.

    Livestock wise I am looking at rabbits, pigeons (utility or possibly homers) and ducks or chickens (still undecided may try both).

    I plan to have at least a quarter of the space dedicated to a soil garden plus a solar greenhouse with aquaponics which I have started to design. There is a lawn in the front though I plan on altering that section for fruiting bushes and other perennials.

    I know there are a bunch of Montanans on here as I have seen many posts in my lurking. Say hello, maybe we will be neighbors.

    Greetings from Kansas, squabnrabbit, and :welcome! Sounds like a little slice of paradise you have there. My wife is from Montana (which she reminds me of every day of the year the temperature is above 70 or she sees a picture of a mountain). There are many Montana folks on BYC. CTKen gave you the link.
    Best wishes and thanks for joining us!

    Hello and a warm welcome to BYC. It seems that redsox was listening to his wife's recollections of mountains, at the time of posting. I believe that he meant to give you this link [​IMG] - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you. Please make yourself at home here and I wish you all the best with your plans.
