Beloved is on the tractor today getting ready to plant our first cash crop. That’s right! We are now official!
We are planting Camelina, an oil producing plant as Canola is, but it requires much less input and preparation on our part. Supposedly, we have a guaranteed buyer, as this oil is being used to create alternative fuel for motor vehicles through some kind of government funded grant. I am not sure of the details, and it is a bit of a risk. But that is life with Beloved, and I am used to it.
Besides, it will be nice to look at something green and growing instead of brown, dead, grass, anyway. I am excited.
So now we can call our farm Almost Plum Nearly Farm and not feel weird about the "farm" part, LOL.
