Once I asked a group of young people "which revolution was the most consequencestial in human history", some said the French revolution, some said the Russian revolution, some said the glorious revolution, nobody said the "Neolithic revolution".So very true but I would love to cushion my pockets along the way!! Farm life is anything but cheap! Feeding this crew alone is enough to choke me! We do know that it will come around by them feeding us eventually!
The people deciding to abandon the nomadic lifestyle of hunter gathers and domesticating plants and animals was the most consequencestial decision our species ever made. It was not an easy choice. The grains, the fruits, the vegetables, the animals we see today didn't exist back then. They are the results of the Neolithic revolution. Still they did it, they stuck to it. Why? Why did our ancestors decide to start farming? Well we don't know, my theory is that they wanted to control of their lives. Farming is all about taking control of yourself.
I think we should start with trying to save money and then go to make money part with the farming. More food you are able to grow for yourself and your menagerie, the more money you will save. Start with the millet next year, they are the hardiest crops.
