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.

Feeling adventurous! Apricots and Oats.. Apricots are hogging so much time hope they are worth the effort..
Oats will be the last crop on this part of this ranch before we plant almonds later this year.
lush green oats (what this picture doesn't capture is the pleasant ruffling sounds that oats grass makes as a gentle breeze passes by).
