Greetings from Johnson County, KS

Post  KS Homesteader on Wed Jun 05, 2013 4:40 pm

Admin asked that I introduce myself since I'm new to this site. I don't always do what I'm asked but since he/she asked nicely.... I see some names and icons that I recognize from another board from a year or two ago so maybe I've already met some of you.

When we moved here, it was 20 acres out in rural Johnson County and we lived on a gravel road. 40 years later, we've got 5 acres left and are smack-dab in the middle of suburbia. Within a mile or two, we've got two 24-hour grocery stores, a Walmart, Kohl's, Target, Lowe's, Home Depot, and all the ancillary shops and fast-food places. Hidden in the midst of all that are our calves, chickens, and rabbits - and we raise catfish in our pond.

Been raising critters long enough to know that I learn something new every day. Joining this site is just one more part of that education!

Welcome! Glad to have you! Sounds like we all could learn a thing or two from you. "calves, chickens, and rabbits - and we raise catfish in our pond." will look forward to conversations with you. In the future..maybe next year, we want to get some calves...but know virtually nothing about them...so will have to pick your thoughts.

There is a topic here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] That I would like to see some articles on raising catfish and again the calves.

Tell us about your rabbits and of course chickens!

Welcome again, make yourself at home and join right in. Very Happy

Hello KS Homesteader

I remember you from a couple years back! I guess if we hang around long enough you run into the same folks twice! Welcome to the group.

I really like the idea of a more localized site. Better opportunity to meet the people and I agree that sometimes our issues or problems can be specific to our region - gives things a better focus. I expect to be touching base on this site regularly. Thanks again!

Welcome!!
I'd love to hear about the catfish as well!
We are about to move into our 22 acres and it has a pond begging for fish! I haven't the slightest idea what to do short of buying them and sumpin them in! Lol
