I moved out of town last December and have spent the past year just making the house livable. Now I am ready to start thinking about starting a garden and maybe have chickens? I used to have a horse but haven't had much luck with other animals... We have an extensive pet cemetery :-( fish, hamster, hermit crabs, and lizards.
I guess what I'm getting at is that I need some really easy ideas for getting started. Will I be able to keep chickens alive? What is involved? Will it be expensive to feed and care for them? Should I wait a year or 2? What are the simplest things to grow in our garden? How do I keep the bugs off without pesticides?
Do you have any other getting started suggestions? Thanks!!!
