I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I'm Justin from the north Texas area. My fiancee and I just moved onto a rental property and have around 4 acres at our disposal. I plan on starting small with a garden and composting, but branching out into more areas as time and money allow. We are raising two little girls that are excited to be living in the country, even if they are having to adjust to the chiggers, mosquitoes, and trees that have thorns!
I'm just starting to learn about permaculture, but I can generally get things to grow, so that's a plus.
I first heard about Permies through Paul's interviews on The Survival Podcast and figured it would be a great place to get started. I look forward to meeting everyone and learning everything I can!

Welcome to permies Justin
Starting small sounds great to me; people so often try to 'overreach' and end up really discouraged and overwhelmed.
I imagine it's pretty dry, possibly with periodical gully-washers? Working out ways to hold and store water in the soil will be a fun challenge!
