      Hey, i was reading the "farming in 50 years post" and notices you said you grow olives. I'm working on making solar-powered soil water and rainfall sensors, and was wondering if those could be useful for olive farms - I've been to spain a few times and notices that it's pretty arid.
      If you've got time, could we discuss this? I could use some advice.

    I had to claw my way into farming, but was determined to do so. By spending a total of 27 years behind desks over 40 years, I managed to hang in, and have owned my own bit of the planet in England, Australia, Scotland and Portugal. I might have one more country left in me before I call it a day and retire to somewhere in Scotland.

    I have grown a wide variety of crops and kept most farm livestock at some stage. I gave up attempting to become rich a very long time ago and life has still been very enjoyable. I recommend others to take the same approach. I even wrote a book about it. I have sold a miniscule number because most folks take the opposite view and want to have money. Their loss.
