    Hello from Texas

    I like your plan. I actually have an old birdcage over some strawberries that had been there since last summer and so people are used to it. I might just expand it and then use that space for extra quail.

    Hello from Texas

    Well, it's becoming a work of art. I have been looking at wire-wrapped gems in a jewelry craft forum and getting inspired. This cage is a rickety old thing and so I will be taking some wire to reinforce it wiith decorative spirals. The first level of social engineering has begun. My landlord's...

    Hello from Texas

    This is a start. I have it mounted on a square planter and I will put that into a longer planter that will be as wide as the whole window.

    Why I like being an urban homesteader

    It's hard to see because it is so windy today that I could'nt get a good view with my phone's camera. But that part that is surrounded by tbe palm-branches is a sunken composter and those sacks are old dogfood bags in which I planted potatoes. They form the beginning of a banked- up area to make...

    Why I like being an urban homesteader

    It's just that strip. I just planted green onions, carrots, dill, sweet peas, and okra. I have two cucumber vines off to a nice start, two cherry tomato and one roma tomato, black beans, strawberries, and malabar spinache. That's the Gulf of Mexico in the distance, Nueces Bay.

    Hello from Texas

    Haven't done it yet. Urban homesteading had to be done very stealthily because of so many rules against everything. Even if you are careful to be compliant with sll city rules, there are people who complain anyway and so you are asked to stop or leave just so the landlord can get some peace. So...

    Hello from Texas

    I don't have any pictures on this device. I'll have to get out there tomorrow and get some. It's just a little strip about a meter wide by four or five meters long running along the fence behind our building. My apartment is a one-room efficiency that's just big enough for me, my little terrier...

    Why I like being an urban homesteader

    Haven't seen that one but I have seen one called "Keeping Up Appearances" that was pretty funny in that sly sort of way that the Brits ate so good at.

    Why I like being an urban homesteader

    Hi. I am an urban homesteader because I live in an apartment and have a very small garden. It is a fun hobby and since I'm in my 60's I don't want to try to manage a big property. The physical side would not bother me but dealing wiith taxes and permits and neighbors would be too much stress...

    Hello from Texas

    Hi. I live on the Gulf Coast in Texas and I found your forum through your quail videos in Youtube. I consider myself an urban homesteader or a peaceful prepper. I'm just getting started, really. I live in an apartment and I have a very small garden. Thank you for the lovely videos!
