I was born in NC and raised in florida, most of my life has been apartment living. My wife and I moved to NC in 07 and now I have a yard. .9 acres. I have never grown anything, but am watching videos on youtube to learn and discovered you guys. I have checked into different things, like hydroponics, and other growing methods. So far permaculture has the most allure to me because I believe nature does things for a reason. I will be happy to answer any questions but don't know a lot yet. My first task is to get together pictures of the different plants I have on the property and see if I can ID them, determine what is useful and what is mulch fodder. I sadly have already discovered some poison ivy or oak, not sure which. Hope you guys don't mind questions, and I hope to add to the community. Thanks for having me.
