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.

It's always better to have someone live at the farm than have the security people patrol.
The mobile home is coming along nicely and I think we will end up with a decent place for some good tenants. Once we pick up the wood left behind and we are ready to disk the ground to clean up the weeds when it is dry enough.
