Unfortunately I think it will be a very long time before any drug is legal here.

I have a buddy in CA that has 2,000 acres that they pay him not to farm. He makes 50k a month not farming.

I had an uncle who was paid for years to not grow crops on a field that was too rocky to plow.

25 bucks an acre in California per month. He couldn't make that farming it. Also having no water to farm it he is making out great.

At that rate I would make 375 bucks a month.

Sheesh. I wonder if I could get them to pay me not to farm on my land.. but I wouldn't feel right doing that...

Chris, I think it sounds like an awesome idea! And you can get the kids involved in gardening with you-- spend some quality time with them and hopefully they will enjoy it.

LOL. Well, nothing heavy duty. You can get each of them to plant one or two things and then let them see how it turns out. My late elderly friend got one of his great grand-daughters excited about planting something. He helped her plant it and she kept asking her parents to bring her over so she could see it and he let her harvest it (with his help) when it was ready. So long as the kids are having fun and want to be involved.

I used to help in the garden when I was younger and I enjoyed it-- but they never forced me to do it-- it was just "Hey, you want to come plant these with us?" Only thing I didn't want to pick was the okra. I despise okra and all those prickly hairs on them. LOL.
