I hate for my first post here to be about me…but that’s how you introduce yourself to forums, I guess! My name is Trey Watson and I am an author, business owner, father, and gardener. My interest in permaculture is recent, but the drive to produce my family’s own food has been with me for years.

Currently, I own and operate Legg Creek Farm (http://www.leggcreekfarm.com), where we grow and sell fruit trees and other awesome edible plants. While at this time everything is conventionally grown, we are trying to zero in on plants that you can grow chemical-free with relative ease. We supply a number of commercial orchards with trees both here in Texas and beyond. But anyone can order through the website. One of the things we are most excited about this year is the Dunstan American chestnut trees we finally have ready for sale. Most of our customer base is in the Southeast and Texas, though we are providing apple trees for orchards in Illinois and Wisconsin.

I am also an author, and I have gardening books available in print or ebook. They are all available on Amazon, but one of them is in Barnes and Nobles in the U.S. Southeast. That book is Southern Bounty: How to Grow and Enjoy Southeastern Native Fruits and Nuts (available: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CTSAEVQ). I think that book might be of interest to members of this forum that live in that region of the U.S.

I really look forward to browsing this forum more and learning from you fine people. Thanks for reading!

Trey,
Welcome to Permies! With your knowledge and experience, your input on the forums here will be very helpful to many, I'm sure. It's a great place to get ideas, ask questions and talk permaculture with lots of great people. I love having a place to talk gardening in the middle of winter. It snowed 7+ inches here today. This site reminds me that warm sunny days aren't too far away. Blessings to you and your family.

Hiya neighbor,

I run a small farm in Cash, TX about 2.5 hours north of you. I bookmarked your site as I am in the process of growing out my orchard. Welcome to the site!

To all our Texas friends,
I hope that you and your families are safe after all this weather. Here in VA today we're on storm/tornado watch. Had one a couple of years ago that took down 3 of our barns. I still don't have another garden shed yet. That's this year's goal.
