Hi all! I am in Atlanta, MI. Yes Michigan! Hour from both Gaylord and Alpena. I organically garden on heavy clay. Will need help when I get going as funds are very very tight due to disability and finances. Also am alone in this endeavor. Definately will need predator guidance!!!!!! Coons, possums, bear, deer, skunks, squirells, mice, voles, ticks, minks, fishers, martins, eagles, hawks to name a few. I do get some food stamps and help with meds through Medicare Extra Help but AM not on Welfare. Hoping to do just enough to stay off it. If I have to in the future I have to (hard for me to accept) but I imagine it will cause depression to resurface as it did when I finally accepted I can not hold a job with my multiple chronic illnesses. Hoping this will help me avoid that feeling this time around. And possibly give something back to the Caring Place that helped me with food. Always was an animal lover and mom said a farmer at heart. Can't do some physical things BUT have to find a way to make this place work for me. I am excited to see one poster use of fish tanks as incubators!!! I have several. Used to breed them. Still run a few but not enough as income. Now I can argue with friends who say I need to sell them and be done with fishkeeping. Thinking maybe something sturdy and then a tractor pen for free range runs.
