You do make an interesting observation about providing sustainable heat.freemotion said:I used to yearn for yet a bigger property. I have horses in my dna, and horses thrive with plenty of room.
Now I work feverishly to maintain my 3 usable acres. For dh and I, it is plenty. Maybe a bit more would be necessary to be totally self-sufficient, if we were to cut all our own wood for heat, for example....but now, horseless for the first time in many, many years, the pasture looks huge. Decadent, really. But I love it and am very content here now, no yearnings for more. Only to get off the busy road....but even that...so many improvements have been made here, to start over would be agony.
For me, my four acres is enough, even with part of it swamp. (Anyone want to buy a large and vigorous herd of mosquitoes? Cheap! )
