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.

Almonds, Apricots and Oats. What's next? Kataru brand of breakfast cereal? :)
The oats look good, the seed heads are forming deep down in the stems and should begin to emerge in a week or two. The cots are still blooming, it is as thought there are two separate flushes of bloom. We are not expecting a commercial harvest, but should be enough for family and friends.
