I'm not sure about crop circles, and I'm still a little confused about farming for a profit, but I have a few neighbors who moved here from the towns around here, some are great neighbors, some are A-holes, but then again, there are a few neighbors that have been here all their life, and some are great neighbors, and some are A-holes.
We came to this area from the greater Philadelphia area, and started a real property fight before we even moved in. The locals at the time were alllll ticked off, so we were delayed moving in. They really weren't all that bad, but they just didn't want our kind moving in. In the end we were able to push them out and now life is good. Deed restriction held up the building of our home for 6 years, but that was a while ago.
The year, 1780, the locals that resisted our re-location, the Iriquois indians, the Person that sold the property to us (William Penn's brother) put a restriction on the land grant that stated that we may not take possesion of the property until Hostilities, with the loca natives had ceased.
I guess we can all go back to being the interlopers in the neighbor hood.
And after all these years, I still ain't sure I figured out this Profit from farming.

I am 'farming', not for profit, but for subsistance, freedom & wholesome food without plastic containers leaching its cancer causing materials into the food, consuming dangerous perservatives, food dye, etc. Believe me, all the hazards will come out in 20 to 30 years. USE GLASS, it is sand (organic).
Working in industrial environments, I have violated about every health rule like up to my armpits in PCB transformer oil, washing hands in triclor-ethelene, benzine exposure, etc. No one knew the hazzards back then! Hopefully my system can be 'flushed' in time.
Looking at my land, a 'cash crop' may be raising Chinchillas. I can grow hay to meet most of their food needs. I am not sure of eating the critters & selling the pelts though!
Thus, look carefully at a cash crop, it may not be a vegitable!

trolls made these crop circles Trolls did it    Posted 02-20-2003 at 16:23:38       [Reply]  [No Email]

Hello Ron,
I enjoyed reading this. Thanks for posting it. I work my backside off to support my farming habit. The farm could support us if things went haywire like in the 30's. But just about only then. And that wouldn't be any cake walk.
Regards- Mike D.

This mini farm is my 'Fort'. A safe haven if the economy goes real bad. Bad times is the greed of others in power & the system is much more fragile than most people know. Many city folks have grabbed their savings & RAN to the country- smart!
