I have talked to two neighbors (that are master gardeners) about growing for me this spring. I will give them the seeds, and in exchange they will grow their almost 1 1/2 acres combined and each share 40% of their crop with me. I will be running both the dehydrator and the new freeze dryer a lot.

You're going to be surprised how much you can grow on that much land. You may want to add a canner to that list. Canning jars are expensive, but you only have to buy them once.

Onward and upward,

I grew up on a farm, and have done a LOT of gardening. One underused technique is “succession planting”. One can often get 2-3 crops out of one space. I hate to see soil sitting idle.

Not time for a crop... grow a cover crop!

What a bargain, someone else's land, someone else's work, 40% just for providing seeds. You must be a hell of a negotiator.

I'd talk to you about gardening but all you gotta do is sit back and wait. Nice.
