Why north west Wyoming ? The areas with better gardening climate would be the north east to south east and some micro climates in central Wyoming. Green houses are a must and careful plant selection is the key.

Well, you stipulated the states you wanted but I would suggest Texas if you want wide open spaces, long gardening seasons, and little government interference. There are mountains in West Texas.

I chose Northwest Wyoming because I like the area and I want to be close to Yellowstone and the Rockies.

As for Texas, I'd love to live there, but 1) it's too hot and humid for me. I can't take that kind of heat. And 2) I don't want to live near Mexico. I have nothing against those who live here legally, but I don't want to live near a point of entry for illegals.

LOL, it's a 'dry heat'.
My wife is from MN and loves it here. Beats the cold, the mosquitos and the relative humidity that's there.

Dry or not, I'm a heat wimp. I can handle -60F better than I can handle 90F! I get nauseous, queazy, light-headed and am zapped of all energy when it gets hot.

it may sound a little crazy...but eastern Long Island may be for you. It is very fertile farm country out here. Quite rural with lots of small New Englandy towns on the north shore.

You will be faced with a higher cost of living...especially for utilities and taxes...but most other costs are comparable to many other parts of the US.

The growing season is a bit extended due to the moderating effects of the ocean. It does get a it humid in the summer...but rarely does the temperature go above 90F. Low to mid 80s is the norm. It can be windy...but it is beautiful country.

I live there...if this interests you feel free to PM!

Thanks for the recommendation! I've pretty much ruled out the northeast because of the greenhouse gas emissions, the concentration of population and the general politics of the area. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the area when I visit! And, technically, I was born in Patchogue! (We moved when I was two.) But, I think the Rocky Mountains are definitely for me!

I'm narrowing it down more and more every day. Soon, I'll have a plan in place and within a year, I'll be set to move! Thanks again!

Wow...from Patchogue!! Ok then you know enough to avoid Long Island like the plague...lol. Seriously though...we settled in Sound Beach. It is really nice out here away from everything that is NYC!

I also spent the last 4 years in northern Utah. It is a truly gorgeous place to live. The growing season may be a little short for your needs...but southern Utah could be an option. A good reliable water supply that does not do more harm than good is an issue...but it is beautiful there.

Best wishes!
