OK, from the feedback I'm getting, Chris70's store, Scotties, in Ozark seems to be agreeable.  He has agreed to provide some simple refreshments (coffee, tea, cookies).  This being our first meeting, I think it wise to keep things simple and limit the meeting to a few hours, say 2 - 4 PM on Sunday 21 March 10.

Chris will need to provide directions, a phone # and his email so we get a head count.  Please let Chris know if you think you can make it.

Any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact either me or Chris.

Hey all, I'm from Fayetteville.  Matt the Farmer, what kind of farming do you do?  I figured I might give a fellow TSPer some business if I get the chance.

perseus-m31,

I'm actually a bit more of a beginning farmer.  I just live by the idea of if you want to be something then claim it.

My wife and I have started farming our .25ish acre yard.  I'm calling it a nano-farm.  Basically we are growing food for a few friends on a subscription/CSA sort of basis, as well as selling at farmers' markets, roadside stands, and hopefully mail-order (dehydrated stuff, like mushrooms), as well as some crafty stuff like fine silver and copper jewelry that I make, clothing and accessories that my wife makes, etc.
I'm trying to apply my systems integration and engineering skills to developing some good products for homesteading like a rainwater management system (solar-powered, cpu/sensor system, collects rainwater, irrigates intelligently, fertilizes via compost tea, etc.).

As far as what we grow, we grow many things but are kind of tailoring to peoples' wants this year since we are now trying to move toward making a living at it.  So, what would you like?  We are actually finalizing that stuff now...

We can/have grown: tomatoes (all types), ground cherries, winter squash, summer squash, potatoes, beans (green, lima, etc.), peas, many varieties of lettuce, spinach, beets, carrots, amaranth, hops (not going too good), mushrooms (oyster, shitake, maitake, etc.), Hot peppers, sweet peppers, bell peppers, onions, eggplant, cabbage, brussels sprouts, sunflowers, most common herbs, raspberries, dewberrries, blueberries, pumpkins, melons, cucumbers, probably many more but I'll stop there.

Oh yeah, working on a podcast/video show too.  Mostly about "scroungineering" which I will explain in the show if I ever get it going.
Anyway, wehat kind of produce do you prefer?  We're in Gravette, by the way...

Well, golly bill gee whiz.  I'm absolutely underwhelmed by the response we received to the solicitation to a meet-up of Arkansas TSPers.  Maybe it was the day of the week or the location. but no one showed any interest.

Let's give it a rest and try again later.  In the meantime, we can enjoy our association here on the TSP Forum.

I will be closing on my house in Monte Ne in 1 week. I will be encountering many firsts with this move, my first well, garden, rain harvesting system, septic/gray water system and I want to set up a shooting range. I need all the help and advice I can get, that being said I would love to host a meeting for local TSP members at my new homestead. anytime will be good for me and everyone is welcome to come if they want, we will need to set a date and i am thinking it can be done casually over a weekend so those coming from futher away can make it a mini vacation and bring RVs or campers/tents and camp on my land or at Horseshoe Bend state park 4mi away on Beaver Lake.

Anyone interested?

McCrory here. And you ain't seen mosquitoes until you come to the delta! ;D By the way the hogs won tonight in overtime!!

I actually saw a mosquitoe trying to rape a blackbird in the delta last year. ;D you might be better off with a shotgun instead of insect repellent.

Not yet, but hope to be there soon.  We are looking at houses around Table Rock Lake (OK, so that's Southwest MO... but close enough.  Or would someone from MO not be welcome? <G>).

we are in Hope AR. bought the farm so to speak or so the folks in Houston said when we left the rat race there a year ago. as for tips or hints for the area. Keep vicks around the house. it will sure help with the ticks. camphor trees on the list to plant next year for the more home made salve for the same issue.

Well, after being lost for the past year and a half, I'm back on TSP.  Since then plans for the move to south Texas fell through, and I find myself in central Arkansas.  I plan on this being my final spot.  Just bought a nice rural place with 5 acres, a pond and lots of wildlife.  I'm in the Malvern region.  If anyone is in the area and would like to meet up sometime, let me know.  I'm still trying to learn all the areas.

I'm up in Benton County in NWA.  mlwilki - If you're at Monte Ne, you should be able to hear me when I'm out shooting or blow my firetruck air horn.  I'm right across the water.

Maybe at some point we can have a NLR group to have a monthly get together.

Hey Uk,
I'm going to some type of survivor/prepper seminar Saturday. Put on by "ineed2prepare.com"
They appear to be based in LR/NLR. I ordered some things from them - Berkey Water filter, emergency food etc.. Ever heard of them? They seem to be legit.. Hope so.
