Other things we have growing out here are: honeysuckles, catalpa trees, birch trees, honey locust trees, willow, sycamores, sweet gum, prickly pear cactus, pine, cedar, elm, Bradford pear, and elm trees.
We have seen all kinds of wildlife that include: squirrels, skunks, rabbits, fox, opossums, armadillos, moles, bobcat, mountain lion, black bears, raccoon, coyotes, deer, wild turkeys, wild ducks, geese, otters, beavers, turtles (box and snapping), many kinds of snakes (copperheads, water moccasins, coach whips, etc.) and all manner of birds.
We have a small pond and a branch running through the property and we have a free running creek that runs right behind our home and a watershed lake is about a mile away, definitely within walking distance. We do what we can to conserve our precious water resources. We do not use chemical herbicides or pesticides.
We also have 3 wells and a large sustainable garden with permeable soil and grow beds. We are all about going back to the basics and to our natural roots. We try to forage our land and grow what we can so we don't depend on the supermarkets for our needs. We also raise dairy and meat goats, chickens, turkeys and ducks. Life is good in the country and I am so glad we live here!
