Join the crowd.Most of my friends and some family just think I'm qurickie;).But my kids are right in line with me.:D thank goodness.Being near my grand-kids and of course their parents is the main reason ,I bought where I did.I have enough room for the immediate family to live off of the land when and if we have too.Also the location is ideal for a BOL and a cool home too.We have fun at our breakfast and the more the merrier. One thing you may want to look into is around us in Morgantown we have a settlement of Amish.They have a WEALTH of information and a few are willing to share.They also have "heirloom" seeds which is very nice to have if you can buy them at the county fair or vegetable stand.

I will have to check that out gabby. I used to buy chicken feed from the amish settlement near gold city. I currently live in a small apt and am thinking of a small indoor garden for the winter. Any ideas on what might would grow?

For inside be sure you have a good window and /or a grow light.I use to grow African Violets and strangers would knock on my door and ask me how did I get them so nice,I would smile and say leave them alone.Now that I do prep but travel most of the year it's hard for me to take care of anything. I would suggest easy.... like you can grow potatoes in a metal trash can.I also google just about everything.But you can adapt the darndest things with a grow light. it's fun to start your seedlings early too.Start small,and think UP!!!!!!!.I had shelves and stuff stacked to the top of the house it looked like a jungle.Just remember to put a layer of heavy duty plastic down to catch the mess.Happy apt gardening!

My mother is looking to buy land/a farm there in Kentucky and is sending my husband and I there to get a working farm up and running before she arrives. She's footing the bills so, why not. Anyway, was just wanting to say hi because we will start in the Lexington area this summer, renting and beginning to know the state.

Oh, why KY? Because we have family in Oklahoma, Texas and Ohio and my mother wants to be between her sisters, both of which are 'preppers'.

Hi Asiza, Kentucky is very nice country and the people are some of the nicest in the US I'm a transplant from MI myself love it here in the Glasgow area, Barren county has some of the highest rated schools in the state if you have kids in school. Should you get into this area in your travels PM me for directions to stop in and say hi.

Sounds good. I will definitely do that. The Glasgow area looks very pretty via google.

I have 2 kids that will still be school age by summer. One will be in high school and the other in elementary. Both are of high intelligence so, they get bored easily. I was worried about moving them about because the school system here has a special program for them. It was created to track my son's progress in 5th grade because he maxed out the testing computer's grade level results. It only scored up to 12th grade averages. :) Alright - done bragging.
