No free lunch
While hard working farmers are slaving away in the spring, summer and fall, I get to live a life of ease. They plow and till and cultivate and plant and fertilize and spray and harvest. They do a lot of other hard stuff I'm only partially familiar with.
While they're doing that, I fix a little fence, check water, distribute salt, and pretty much take it easy. The cattle feed and water themselves for the most part, and I get to go hiking a lot.
