Nick Ferguson is in Texas as part of a consultation tour and spending a few days at Nine Mile Farm. We were sampling some amazing rum last night along with some far too good martinis and started talking about a variety of subjects. With Nick and I of course that involved fish tanks and aquatic systems but we also started talking plants, plant propagation, the concept of micro CSAs, planning for an eventual economic shift and more.
It all sounded pretty good after a second drink anyway so we figured it might still sound good today, we shall see about that. ;>)
So join Nick and I today as we discuss…
- Nicks new nursery business and progress on his launch sale
- The concept of a micro CSA and is that the right names since I don’t really mean a CSA
- Seeing homesteading as an investment, ie planting trees that gain value over time, etc.
- Why this may be the most important time in history to take and entrepreneurship path
- What to look for in a property and how it relates to your long term goals
- The importance of living frugally and eliminating debt
- Not letting perfect be the enemy of the good with technologies like say hydroponics
- The role of animals for homesteaders and keeping them “profitable” even if you don’t sell them
- What the next 5-10 years look like, may be and definitely at the same time
