So what would you do with a farm?
Sometimes when i think of my dad’s farm, I wonder what I would do with it if I could. What would I plant? Would I have an easier time of it or worse? Would I ruin it?
What I think I would do is actually try to make it an organic farm. And get it certified as such.
I would get the coffee pruned and see if it was still viable.
I would get access to electricity and water, if necessary dig a well.
I would cut down some of the overgrown trees and sell the wood.
I would continue with the loroco and the noni and try to find alternate things to plant. No more relying on one crop.
I would build a new caretaker’s house.
I would plant an herb and vegetable garden.
I would organize the farm in grids depending on what I wanted in each section.
Well! But it’s much easier to daydream thatn it is to actually DO anything. =) Still….it’s interesting to think about.
