Hey all! I'm looking for some new friends in the SE Michigan area. I know there is the Smitten for the Mitten threadhttps://permies.com/t/13349/Smitten-Mitten, but it is pretty old and I'm not sure who is still active.
Where are you all living these days? I'm just outside of Ortonville, so if you are in the Clarkston, Flint, Holly areas (maybe even in Detroit) I'd love to see if we can meet up.
I'm in a rental with about a 3/4 acreyard. I've been given permission to do mostly anything back here, so I'm planning on lots of fruittrees, tractored chickens, and mainly other woody/perennial plants. Girlfriend manages a demonstration farm, so we are pretty well set on annual vegetables. Can't see myself putting too much money into infrastructure since this isn't a permanent situation for us, but there may be some things I will spring for.
