In addition to now raising chickens I have my veggie garden that I refer to as my farm. Being 20 minutes outside NYC it is more like a mini farm (but a girl can dream right) Anyway I grow just about everything I can fruits, berries, veggies of all sorts. No one in my family knows why I am so into the farm thing since we are all city folk and since there is no one around me that does what I do I find myself traveling to any farm or local farmers market to pick the brains of anyone who might have good suggestions. I am a strict organic farmer so I am always looking for new and better ways to get the best harvests. I fish, shoot guns, and am a carpenter/mason as well. I have seen that a few of you also raise bees and such. I would love to know all the cool stuff you all do so please list them here if you are so inclined. Call me a weirdo but I am really interested in learning and gaining knowledge from some of the other more experienced people on this site since it is clear that there is a ton of experience and knowledge in this forum.
