Farming is not easy, not pretty, not wildly profitable. And I had no prior experience; then, why did I even get into it? I believe I felt a connection. Plus the challenge excited me - To be a successful farmer nowadays, one has to be equal parts entrepreneur and agronomist. As I dug into it, I also found farming to be fulfilling. That's how I branched into agriculture, as the Sanskrit aphorism "Vriksho Rakshati Rakshitaha" (Trees, when protected, protect you) took on a new meaning for me.

Carpenter almond ranch pics
Beautiful!! Lots of nuts, good growth, good weed control (for now anyway, we'll have to be back for the weeds several times before harvest). Low hanging limbs may have to be tipped back. Click on pictures for larger view.
