I have a lot of these growing in my front fence line. I too would love to know what they are. I will get a picture in a bit. Some of mine are the size of small trees (or large bushes).

I feel for you. We have bermuda grass..that stuff is horrible and my critters don't like it. I also have hip and knee issues. I have an acre garden that I plant and work every year. My husband noticed I was having issues hoeing the garden. He took and sharpened my hoe and bent the neck so it got more of a bite. I love it. Eats right through most of the weeds. Now for that obnoxious grass.....I have a dandelion puller (not for my dandelions though). You step on it and it is spring loaded, pulls up the roots. Every time I see the green starting back up, I hit it again. We are in Central Oklahoma. I have found that a shade cloth is an absolute necessity if I want anything to do well. I have a line of bright green in my grass.....it is the area of yard that gets evening shade. I had to relearn how to grow a garden. I lived in northern Missouri for years. Gardening there was easy. It has been a real learning curve here.  During the dry season (seems like most the year ) I put out buckets with drip irrigation as I have to haul my water. I really need a catchment system.

Is there any more information? My house has wood floors and wont support a rmh. But I was hopeful that I could build a rmh adjacent to my building to use for radiant in floor heating, and possibly heating water as well.

So, to enter should we post here? Purhaps we should peruse the permies site looking for pie(who dont love pie?), books, and dvd posts? Hmmm.... I love a good challenge. I must also post to facebook.
Hi! Newbie transplant from northern missouri. what days and where are those farmers markets? We live near Stroud. I am chomping at the bit to get to growing but I have a lot to learn about the area. So far the desert king watermelons are doing good.

I live about half way between tulsa and okc. I learned gardening in north western missouri. Boy let me tell you I am having to pay serious attention to water retention methods. That and I have a massive amount of inedible weeds (us or the livestock). Oh...the clay drives me crazy! Lol On the other hand it has been beneficial for the cobwood. Any pointers on what fruit trees do well here?

I have been scouring the forum for a similar answer. My place will be less than 1000 sqft with the sleep loft. I havent learned the difference in the pipe size, or if there is just one standard barrel size. Just a fellow newbie.

I realize that pic isnt the best. But some of the posts are free standing at the moment. Others are starting to get cross members added. It has been hot so work is slow. the outer posts are supports for the "wrap around porch". The trench is going next to the inner posts, then the rock for the wall base. You cant tell it but the entire area slopes away from the house. We are learning as we go.

Keep in mind its just my husband and I building...the kids keep us entertained for this portion. We have a few more posts to set and the trench to dig and fill next.
