Re: Living below my means

Just curious -- had you considered LED farming? Or is water not an issue of any kind? It's becoming more of an issue around the country (and world)...

What is LED farming? Like LED lights? We are using LED lighting, but yes, it cost a [more]

Re: Security deposit laws

I'd be interested to have you post how this works out!

I'll be happy to post updates once all is said and done.

The shame of it is that the owner/landlords really never wanted to be landlords. They poured heart and soul (and [more]

Re: Living below my means

You got a farm loan for 5.5 acres???

Yep! We are hydroponic farmers and we grow 1,600 heads of lettuce/basil/arugula a week in a 3,000 sq. ft. greenhouse.

Believe me, we have been through the wringer. And it was worth it!

Re: Security deposit laws

Do you think this was extraordinary to do ?

Re: Security deposit laws

Yeah, I don't envy landlords.

I think we are pretty responsible tenants: on-time payments monthly for 7 3/4 years, pretty general wear-and-tear (according to that list), but nothing over the top.

And we are more than willing to [more]

Security deposit laws

We've been leasing a property for almost 8 years. The security deposit was very low: $200. The rent has been a little over $1,000/month.
