Anybody know of a financial angel who would grant me the 40,000 so I can start a permicultural farm. No Really!
I talk to the owner/seller and there is a spring on the property. There are several drainages. (Think swales.) At the bottom of the picture(off the picture) there is a larger stream with small farms along it. A south facing slope to the whole property. Taxes are about 250 bucks per year. Off grid.
This one is killing me !

No I haven't driven over there yet. I figure it would just break my heart more. My bet is that in the drainages it is higher and greener.

Hey, I planted some zone 2b dark cherries this year. We sometimes get to 50 below, but I haven't seen it in the 3 years Ive been in Idaho. Henry fields and gurneys sells them. Thought Id let you know since few fruit trees are available for you.

Thanks Arrow ! I have grown nanking cherries too, got to get them before the birds do though. Had a cortland apple that would set fruit in most years. It only gets to 60 below when the wind is really howling and it is good and cold to start with.
