Yes, I live here in Springfield. Looking forward to hearing from you and your husband when next in town. Sounds like you've got some great bottom land to work with- I'd love to come for a walk-about someday this spring. Paw paws and norther pecans would probably do well along the margins- both are top food trees.

Recovering our fertile land is the key answer to the question of our times: "What if  Missouri had to feed itself again?" Thank goodness you are part of the answer!

8 acres of bottom land!

Wow- that has a huge production potential.

Please let me know if you and your husband are interested in doing one or more crops

for volume production for a local grocery store (veggies, asparagus?)!

Let me know when you're in town, have time for a coffee and introductions-

(417) 353-7758

All the best,

Galen

Welcome Amanda!

Many in this growing movement would love to know just half of what you've learned in 14 years of gardening! And, I see we share an enthusiasm for purple tomatoes and asparagus. Perhaps of interest to you: An all new, "news-paper format" will be coming soon to this site, and will feature garden reports, food/jobs commentary, and tips. PLease feel free to send in regular 'notes from the front,' as they say. Timely, first hand knowledge geared to our locale and weather will really help those of us who are first-timers, yeah! [And maybe motivate others of us to get off our astonishing, holiday-epanded rear ends and get going on our garden to-do lists].
