This is my first attempt at blogging. I grew up on a farm in South Dakota with all the typical farm animals. Cows, turkeys, pigs, chickens, geese, ducks and sometimes a billygoat. I now live in Riverside Ca which is east of Los Angeles, and densely populated. Most yards are less that a 10th of an acre and raising animals other than a dog or cat isn't allowed. I am starting a nursery on some rented land to raise and propagate dahlias, amaryllis, irises, gladiolus, and irises. I also decided to start growing vegetables on another portion of property I found near my house. Its a beautiful property with lots of potential. There are 2.5 acres with a stocked fish pond, corrals, chicken coop, and 65 tree orchard. I will be posting regularly on my journey.
