your next big thing? Immediately the wheels started turning so I am pondering. What would be my next big thing?
One friend wrote simply, "a cemetery plot!" Whoops, well haven't done that yet either but not really wanting to think about that today. I must be feeling better! I quit drinking water from recycled plastic bottles I have a bad habit of doing and my lungs cleared and my coughing has almost stopped! Do you think that could be it?
I'd really like to restore one of my 3 nice old tractors. I would love to pull one in a local 7000 lb out of the field stock class if we had one. My mind kept going back to fixing up that new farm as a place to play, make money and spend some of it.
I would really like to get the main tile at the entrance replaced or repaired and build a half mile gravel road back to the woods. Then I could go back there easily even on a day like today. There is so much to see in the back of that parcel of land.
I thought about Living In Your Fields and walking among crops and CRP and woods just looking around, sampling things and thinking out loud with the grand kids. This isn't exactly "The Edge of Farming," like the video series shows, but it kind of is to me.
The next big thing in agriculture is going to be much bigger than any of us. We are going to have to agree what that is. Our country is so divided now we can't agree on who to elect to get us where we need to be. We don't agree where we need to be.
Agriculture is much the same way. I can't see the need for genetically modified seed on my farm and I see perils for all of us if we follow the 90% who do. I am in that 10% minority. We can't even agree on what the best way to farm is, let alone who should lead our country.
All we can do is study the issues and find what's best for ourselves. If others want to come that way, we lead them one step at a time.
Right now I am involved in so many next big things I need to take that one step at a time myself.
How about you?
