My plot is about 4' X 8', or 0.000735 acres, give ot take a hectare or two. Do you think just one horse is enough to farm a patch that sized? Or, would two be better? Don't want to over work him. Don't want to be only half done in the field, and have to go back to the barn and harness up 'tuther horse.
But Jack you are not looking at the whole picture.
With a Goat after you till the land then you feed it some good food for a while. When it gets plesently plump then BBQ the sucker. After all they are related and in the same family that White Tail Deer are in.
Well, I added to my farming endeavoes here. There are now about twice what I had last year - a full ten (10) square feet is under cultivation here. NOTE: the garden area is rectangular, so the feet are square. If the garden was circular, then it would be 10 round feet. Wouldn't it?
4 jalapenos, 4 California Wonder green peppers, and 4 roma tomatoes. It won't put much of a dent in DelMonte or Heinz, but it satisfies me.
