Tough racket that farming stuff. It does get in your blood though. I grew 2500 heads of cauliflower this past year. You have to walk through the whole field on a daily basis when it is heading to look for heads opening up starting to show white. You gather the leaves around the head and tie them to keep the sun off-turns them yellow and nasty looking.
Then when you harvest them you have to carefully trim the upper leaves off, leaving enough to protect the head during transport. When you get to market you trim most of those leaves off so you can see how nice it is.
My bud sarcastically said don't fool around next year, plant 8 or 10 thousand instead of a paltry 2500.
