In the small farm at Ten-Sho-An, pesticide-free vegetables are growing… Yesterday, we sold radishes.
If you think about it, it’s a complete waste of time and effort, but I don’t think about labor costs in the first place, and I produce for fun, so if I can make a little profit, it’s worth it. It’s fun to make decisions based on perspectives other than just production efficiency…it’s interesting to be free from the market economy. This isn’t just about labor, the same can be said about consumption and living. A self-sufficient life is interesting and economically strong. It’s the exact opposite of the computerized, rationalized society.
