  garden and larger food plot
We have settled on a veggie garden up to the house, probably about 40' by 60' with various things. Family meeting required to sort that out, but then we have the 2 acre section that we can utilize. It needs to be cleared first of the brush and tag alders. Thinking maybe sweet corn? Pumpkins might be easier.

  Chickens and Eggs
I love fresh chicken eggs, too - so much better that store bought!

We have this beautiful property, strong backs and ambition! We would like to make 2 small (1 to 2 acre) sections of our 11 acre property productive! About 6 acres are covered in water (part of a 30 acre pond) and we have a beaver and muskrat issue. We have to start small as our only tractor is of the garden variety. I anticipate getting a good tiller but maybe a tractor is in the works? Who can give me advice on a good crop(s) to start with?
