Im sure this isnt the right place but there alot of different places on this site and some Id rather stay clear of so hopefully this will be Ok to post here and it will stay here.

I hope you guys can find the time to watch this video and comment, there are alot of questions embedded in the video and Im sure alot of things that you guys can give your opinions on.

Ive turned off comments cause alot of people are mean spirited and lifes too short to waste my time trying to take inconstructive/destructive criticism  Thanks

Great start with the land, Jason. I don't envy you with all that sand, but you're on the right track with all the mulch and planting you're doing. Maybe some legume cover crops will help on the bare spots. The grass looks like bermuda. Good thing you like it, as it will stay with you.

Are you planting some of your trees with an eye toward coppicing? That would be a way of getting more carbon into that soil over time.

I had to google coppicing so no, that wasnt my plan, at this point just getting in the ground what I think Id like to see, learning and enjoying myself. Its anyones guess what this might turn into.

Id much rather have all this sand than rocky terrain, Im sure this sand has got to be easier to work with and correct.

Im in close contact with the local extension services, they offer many programs online for free that I am taking advantage of, they also have an interest in small scale farming for a profit in which I am gonna learn more about.

They are actually coming out to my property next fri to look around and give me recommendations on what I could be doing to improve conditions and advise me on any questions I have that directly relate to the property and are tough to describe online.
 
Oh sure, it's a tiny ad, but under the right circumstances, it gets bigger.
