How many people here live in the area from Lubbock to Odessa that practice in this area trying to green up this area. I am looking for people around here as I am in Gaines County. I own 30 acres here and looking for others that would like to help me as I am new to this. I have technical skills in computers and satellite networks but little knowledge in this. I have been taking ideas here and there over the last 2 years since I have been out of the army but looking to change my land up to be more self sufficient.
Location: Gaines County, Texas South of Seminole, Tx zone 7b/8a
Greetings from Brewster County!
We are a bit south of you, but certainly in the West Texas desert nevertheless.
And yes, we are working on establishing a "desert homestead", though some might think those words do not belong together. The rest of us like a challenge I suppose.
We only just arrived about six months ago, so you are most certainly ahead of us on the curve, but it's nice to see other West Texans on here, also carving out their happiness in the land of beautiful sunrises, sunsets and amazing storms!
So far, so good. We have some small raised beds with black-eyed peas, sweet potatoes and anasazi beans that are doing really well so far.
Doing good up here. Just been a busy year. Mainly with work as many workers got covid so I ended up working a whole lot. Then new software to fit in the mix and they put me as Admin on it due to my background so gave me more responsibility. Didn't really get to do to much on my land this last year. Hopefully this year will be different.
I'm in Western Oklahoma east of Amarillo. That's the great plains, not the high plains. My elevation is 2,000 ft. Jack Edmondson sounds like you are closer to me than the original poster. But I'm pretty lonely for permies over here in Western Oklahoma.
Permies is awesome!!!
I've never won anything before. Not even a tiny ad:
