It's a nightmare the amount of bureaucracy in this country.
Intermediaries are those that wins the money, not the producers.
Maybe a few "niche" products could be worthwhile.
If you watch youtube you'll notice that Americans builds all those things with wood. Wood it's expensive in Europe.PVC tubes are a much better alternative regarding cost, but it's plastic, meaning petrol. All this is very interesting.
Is that a cage for growing squared melons?
Bamboo might be an alternative. IIRC it may be a couple years before you pull any meaningful poles from a stand/crop/group of it.
Now I'm planning a guillotine to cut chicken's heads. Wonderful instrument.
Why not using something more human like an electric chair?
Lol, seems excessive guys.

I had plans to get away to the city early on in life. Somewhere in IT or teaching history.

Suggested readings:So You Want To Be a Farmer...Can You Make a Living on a Small Farm?6 Things No One Tells You About Living on a FarmSo, since my nomadic plans are still waiting I decided maybe I'll try the contrary, to be a slave of the Land. There's a growing number of people that are tired of city life, city jobs (or lack of it...), city repression and all that anti-natural way of living. We aren't ants for living like ants.Most of my Country's interior is almost abandoned. A paradise for "alternative" ways of life. But there's a problem, a small problem. I know nothing about agricultural things.The good part is that only a few elder people still lives there, that's good. Elder people from the country side knows how to do things. They can teach me. In return, (that's what I like, a way of life based at direct exchange between people) I can help them doing those things they can't do it anymore. Or teaching them a bit about computers so they can use Skype for example and speak with their families abroad.From my readings and talking with some people I don't believe one can "make a living" from a small farm. But one can diminish very much the dependency on money by way of an almost self independence regarding food. It also goes for energy with the modern technologies.And then, there's everything one can get.... more time for the real important things, living and eating at the natural pace of seasons, independence, do your own wine... What do you think about it? already doing it? thinking about doing it? previous experiences? what advantages do you see? difficulties?Why not, mother land awaits for you...
Mandi, youngsters should be give a wide berth... No?! (Note: She's not fool enough to get into the bucket of water. And she's old enough to know better -judging from her backside, which she showed an ample amount of in that picture- than to make herself an ass, too! She, perhaps, knows more about donkeys than you do.) But -- I'm a city boy: What do I know?
