After manny plans and crazy ideas i started beekekping and its the nicest thing.Now instead of food crops i plant flowers for the bees .Phacelia tanacetifolia can make a ton of nectar per hectare wich its a lot more expensive than corn and can be planted 2 times a year.You dont even need to have a big land.With aquacoulture there is a high risk that you could loose everything over night.Chickens,goats ,pigs and otther animals i dont like to farm because its a dirty job ,big responsability,time consuming and i dont like to kill animals.

Yee haw, Phacelia tanacetifolia is a great plant! Smells amazing and has purple pollen as well.

Stoked to hear you using that rad California Native dryland adapted species.
