Today is a special day. Our first harvest of the black grams took place today. I could not witness in person as I’m back in the city to take care of my business. I spend the weekends at the farm and weekdays in the city. Black grams is a 60 day crop and the the pods have started to mature. You can feel that the pods have matured by the tension of the outer cover. Even a little pressure will make the pod covers to explode open popping the seeds out.
Now comes the business side of things. It will be interesting to figure out how much the produce sells for and to calculate the investment v/s returns.
