Turns out that NO TILL farming, is better for the microbes and earthworms and soil life.
Tillage (tractor farming) really plays havoc on soil life.
And there is a style of farming called MARKET GARDENING... it's all about selling your veggies to your local buyers (not Walmart or Costco, as they will NOT pay full price)... local, as in DIRECT MARKETING to them.
I bring all this up, because Warriors are always looking for new ways to make money. And magically, folks everywhere get hungry 3 times a day.
If you've been keeping up on current events, the national debt, the virus out of that Asian country, the price of oil and the stock market, and all those things... one would think it might be smart to get the hang of back yard farming. Just saying...
Think about it, most of the products on the shelves at Walmart, and Costco, hell even Trader Joe's, come from California or Brazil.... And there are no stores across the country with any back room storage to speak of. The "warehouse" is actually on a semi-truck rolling down interstate 5 as we speak. If those trucks stop rolling, for what ever reason (gas prices, quarantine, riots, bad weather credit-markets freezing up, "Cash On Delivery, pal" ) aren't we all kinda screwed?
If that happens, the local farmer/gardener will be KING.
But you don't have to wait for all that to happen to be a success in gardening.
There are guys out there bringing in $100,000 a year or more off an acre of land using NO TILL and MARKET GARDENING methods.
That sure beats the tractor farmers who get sometimes $300 a year off an acre AND they have sell to Walmart and Costco, -- not local -- 'cause they're not "direct marketing".
Seeds don't cost much. And there is land everywhere, lawns, back yards, you name it. There's even a guy in Vancouver, Canada who has a profitable farm right on top of asphalt parking lots. Amazing.
Let's say you're wildly successful with online marketing... would it hurt you much to spend some time getting to know your soil?
You think online marketing is where it's at... imagine blending your marketing skill with a basic real product like carrots, kale, tomatoes, cabbage, etc.
And thinking hard.
