You knew people who make enough money out of agriculture fulfilled their financial obligations with their families. Those people who did not even finished college, but they did well in securing their families’ needs from these so called certified agricultural opportunities from the crop they farm or with animals they raise.
Do you want an additional income?!
Or you have a dream like mine to make it as my sole source of living?
You might disagree, but what the mind can perceive it can achieve, so you have to believe first and make it work. Use your motivations:
Enjoy a family dinner every night.
Take care of your aging mother.
Or soaked and enjoy the beach every summer.
But you really have to start now in order for you to get your rhythm and momentum. Grow little by little while you are still earning your peso or your dollar, your riyal or any currency which you are getting right now.
There is no place like home isn’t it?
So if you have an agricultural heart or looking for something you can grow your money with?!

Refrigerator is a certified agricultural vault , and by opening it you would have the basic idea of what are you going to produce.
Do you put rice in your ref? For me it depends if the room temp is hot then I would, to prevent it from spoiling.

You love rice don’t you? Not GLEN RICE the basketball player! But the rice which wins the MVP in every table and in every occasion! Or the MVF
