    About a year ago my husband, 3 kids, 2 foreign exchange students (which have gone back home), and I left our subdivision home and moved 6 miles west to our 5.5 acre farmette. Wow- so much work but a lot of fun to be had as well. Right not I have 12 ducks and 2 barn kitties. The property came with 8 fruit trees and 4 grapevines which I am hoping from what I learn here to produce a better crop. I have 2 pears, 3 apples, 2 peach and 1 cherry tree.

    Hi Chrisi and welcome,
    Congratulations on your new digs! Did a pond come with your ducks? You're off to a good start already ... what other projects have you been working on?

    No duck pond :( That is next on the list but I'm hoping to understand the water movement on my property so hopefully I could have pont water fertilize fruit trees.
