HOW TO MAKE AN EXTRA $4,000 FROM A FIELD OF ROTTEN TOMATOES
Tomato Seeds – A Cash Crop.
A few years ago, a small-time farmer friend leased out a quarter acre from a large farmer. He planted tomatoes on every inch of that plot.
He never bothered to harvest any of the crop. When it was obviously too late to harvest, the large farmer said to the small farmer… “What the hell are you doing? Your tomatoes are going rotten.”
The small time farmer smiled.
When it was time, he picked all the tomatoes, rotten and all… and harvested the seeds.
He sold seeds on craigslist to local back-yard farmers the next spring an pocketed a cool, clean $4,000 extra bucks.
The advantage to this is… when you sell tomatoes, you must sell them fast. They don’t last very long. But when you sell the seeds, you’ve got a few years worth of stored value in those seeds.
And racing against time is always a consideration when farming or gardening.
