Hello, from West Texas here! Have a small place about 3.5acres and working toward a nice homestead. We raised 15 Broad breasted bronze turkeys that are getting close to harvest time. Have 4 laying hens that give us an average of 5 eggs a day and 20 young hens still in a pen in there own that we hope to really raise our egg production. We have 2 ducks and are working on getting some feeder pigs real soon. Gardening is a real challenge here cause of the dry blistering heat, lack of rain, caliche,rock and rock shelf about 4"-1" so this next spring were going to give container gardening a shot. We also would love to get a top bar bee hive, that would be wonderful. Hope to learn a lot on this site and hopefully be help to others.

Welcome, from North Central Texas! Yep, rain is an issue here as well:-(. We get some, not enough though!

Good luck, hope you find lots of great advice and answers here!

Welcome, I'm south of DFW. Texas ain't never had enough water, as to rock, I can make a drive way by driving the same place for a week. Took my screen name from it. Clarify a bit of what part of West Texas you are in when you ask questions. There is a heap of differences across that region.
