    Hi Taylor:

    How did you actually afford the start up costs of starting your farm? I feel like it’s something we don’t talk about, but is a huge barrier for lots of us. How did you afford the cold frames in 2012? Are you in debt? I don’t mean to put you on the spot, but this is information I’d like to have as someone who is just starting out this next growing season.

    Yours warmly,
