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.

Where have those sky aquifers gone?
Since we have had no rain, we started irrigating at Carpenter yesterday. Unfortunately, after one hour a part in the electrical panel for the deep well overheated. The electrician was able to find and install a replacement part so we are irrigating again today.
