Today we discuss how we are continuing to evolve our plan rather than be married to our ideas. This is a key thing for many people who want liberty and freedom in their own lives. Doesn’t matter if it is farming or any business for that matter.
Too often people come up with an idea or a design or a concept and become married to the vision and when reality shows flaw, they ignore reality. This soon results in failure. Today we discuss how to avoid that using our farm based activities as an example.
Join Me Today to Discuss…
- Why people get married to ideas and why it is bad
- How to get unstuck and remain fluid in your decision making
- Some things we are doing and what our hope from them is
- Quail aviary systems
- Microgreens – delayed until after the busy fall and why
- Tea – delayed to after our fall event and why
- Irrigation – why we have to go on automation
- The West Pasture – locusts to the rescue
- 2016 – Full Focus on Food Forest and Zone One Only
- The Pond – not sure what it will become at this point
- Ducks and More Ducks – what I am learning from them
- My thoughts on taking ducks larger scale, my dream project
- Minimum 5 acres, good soil and ponds are easy to build
- 5 Paddocks, 5 ponds, central holding area
- Silvo Pasture System based on major overstory such as pecans, apples and plumbs
- Mulberry as a fodder crop
- Support trees – black locust, mimosa and honey mesquite
- Likely a leader follower system with cattle in front of ducks
- Highly likely the quail aviaries could be taken large scale
- Everything I just said could be wrong
- What we learn from this level of thinking
