Dear Michaele, you are the first one to step forward with an honest $30,000
per acre gross income. Thank you for doing that. I also respect your
admonition to "leave this be and grow your crops".
However, I wonder if I might prevail on you to share a little about your
crop mix. It would be useful at the end of this rather prolonged discussion
to have at least one example that people can look to as proof positive that
such a thing can be done, and that indeed there are those who are doing it.
On the other hand, as you said before, it is spring, and we all have crops
to plant, so if you want to let this end then please do so.
