I looked for a thread for Texans to share info, best practices, etc. but was unable to find such a thread. Can we start one here?
I currently live in Montgomery County, and we're looking for a place (1 acre or more) to buy near here where we can settle until hubby retires in 5-6 years. After that, we're considering the area SE of Austin (perhaps Bastrop County) with more acreage.
I'm hoping for info (and maybe some leads) on purchasing property in those two areas, as well as design info that is specific to Texas (lots of flatland). I'm also looking for ideas and recommendations on specific plant varieties to grow (food, medicine, pollinator attractors, etc.), tips and techniques, and so on.
Here's a YouTuber creating a permie homestead in flat lands, Texas. I forget what area in particular he is in... for some reason I'm thinking near Houston so that would change the dynamics a little bit, but it's not too far off from the Bastrop area.
