The location is amazing.  Close to downtown and everything else (5 minutes from a Chipotle and Panera) but country living and freedoms.

2.472 acres with about 2 dozen mature maples dappling the property with leaf plenty of litter in the fall and enough open understory to start your forest garden.  A few smaller fruit trees have already been started, as well as the asparagus bed.

The house is 3/1 with a full basement with plenty of shelving and food storage options. 

There is a good sized barn with hay loft. There is also a shop with a mechanic's pit.

The road exposure for side businesses and selling fruits, veg, eggs and honey is superb.

The full details can be viewed on zillow at the following link

Thanks for viewing,
Bobby and Mary
I grew it in southwest Florida for a few months before I moved away. An acquaintance from the fruit club let me dig up some plugs from her yard. I just dug a small hole and put them down and they started to slowly grow (I might have put them down at the wrong time of year, probably best to put them in at the beginning of rainy/hot season). They did eventually maintain their health and got some flowers for my chicken to pluck. I just put them down in a grid pattern with a few feet between each plant with the intent of each finding the others and filling in the area. I'll never know

Hadn't googled the name yet. Apparently, it's a local Ohio company paving brick. Couldn't find a list of ingredients for them.

There were quite a few of these on the property we bought. They are 9 something by 4 something by 2 something and this one weighs 8lb 2oz (snow wet)

This a firebrick possibility?

Ok, bummer. Thanks for the info.. Freebie and on the way somewhere one night, so no big loss. Will use somewhere outside the burn tunnel.

Ok

This one weighs about 51 oz

Most are just over 7 1/2in by just under 3 1/2in by just over 2 1/4in

Thanks

I picked up a stack of 147 hearth bricks in hopes to use for a RMH, but I wonder is there is a way to know if they are appropriate for the burn tunnel and riser? I don't wish to rebuild soon after first build if the bricks break down early due to being a bad material for the high heat. I can snap some photos if they are needed, the weather is warming up a bit the next couple days.

Thanks

Greetings. Just moved back to Columbus area from 4 years in south Florida and looking to connect with locals and see examples of temperate forest gardens.
