We live on only 1/4 of an acre, I am trying to fit what I can into it, and would love to find more perennials that will grow each year and provide food. We love berries, our area is not suitable for blue berries sadly, but I have heard black berries and raspberries will grow, the only thing I am worried about it them taking over, is there any way to help them stay in one area? I don't want them to take over and would feel bad if they migrated into our neighbors yard. Any tips? Are there other bush berries that don't spread that will live in a basic soil (we have very basic soil and water here and I have been told its almost impossible to get it more acidic)

The list never ends lol we have tons of stuff and food, I have been very supportive but after 3 years where 1/3 of our income goes to this stuff where I scrimp and save every penny and he spends it, I took two extra jobs this year along with my already busy life of home school, raising kids, animals, gardening, normal house stuff, and now he wants 1/3 of the new income I make for preps, he just got a $3,000 tent we saved for and I asked if we could take a break and work on saving for bigger land or animals or expanding that garden and he was shocked and told me he has a new list of stuff already, I try to be as supportive as I can about it but I hope it calms down some day, I would love to save, pay off the little debt we have, plan for a future but that gets all held up, he doesn't want to plan for gardens and stuff more then a year out, I did get some fruits trees from my parents for my birthday but he felt it was a waste but oh well I got them

That is exactly what I want to do but he is more buy everything and anything you can even if you wouldn't use it in an emergency and then sit around and wait, this developed a couple years ago and its driving me nuts because I am more of a do something if you are worried about something, learn a skill provide for your self, things you buy only last so long....hopefully he will change his mindset eventually...

Thanks, I would love to just live on it, I am thinking maybe if we spend a couple years saving so we can buy the land with cash then stay in our home until we can afford to build a modest house. I am hoping my husband will change his mind, he is a self proclaimed preper and doesn't see the point in getting land and building for a future he doesn't think will be there but I feel like building towards our future is more important then loading up with stuff we may never use we will see thanks for the input!

Is it possible or completely unfeasible to buy a piece of land away from your home and have a homestead there? Would it just be to hard with how often you would have to go out there? We live in Wyoming but the town we live in you can only have chickens and nothing else, I really want to raise a pig, possibly sheep, and someday I dream to have a milk cow, land just outside of the town is cheap but have no houses, and my husband really doesn't want to sell our house we have only been in it a year and love it, but it limits what we can do, we love our chickens and ducks, and having a garden but part of me wants more
