So if you had a choice between NE Texas and North Central KS, where would you choose to start your homestead at? And what type permiculture would you suggest for TX as well as KS? Why? How? And any other tips would be welcomed. Thanks

I don't know.

Here are some things I would consider:

What do I want to do on the homestead?
-Homesteading means different things to different people. Once you have a vision of what you want to do while homesteading, try breaking it apart bit by bit to see how the vision can become a reality.

Which region/area has a better _______ for my goals?
a) climate & weather
b) legislation
c) economy
d) community & people
e) soils
f) miscellaneous

Depending on the specific site in Kansas or Texas, the type of permaculture techniques to use will vary.

I would think precipitation averages for the exact areas and land prices would be huge factors.
