The rental farmland in the residential area was lined with greenhouses

It seems that home vegetable gardens are becoming popular these days. The relatively large vacant lot in my neighborhood was not a concrete structure, but a rented farmland, just as I thought it would be an apartment building. Surprising.

I was told that they call it a "share farm". Not rental, but sharing. Gig workers instead of subcontractors, freelancers instead of non-regular workers. It all feels like a similar substitution. Well, in this case, the subject is not a human being, so it's okay. In any case, the owner of the land decided that it would be more profitable to turn it into a shared field than to build a building.

In this field, not only seeds, seedlings, and fertilizers are provided, but also farming tools and materials necessary for farming are available, so there's no need to buy them yourself. In addition, there are advisors available to answer any questions. That's a lot of help.

In short, you can imitate a farmer without having to prepare anything and without any prior knowledge. You are a farmer from today. I guess that's what you learn when you try to grow vegetables. You will realize the high level of skill of professional growers.
