Guest: Dave Dewitt, an accomplished chile pepper farmer and author of over fifty books including “Microfarming for Profit.”  I find myself, at the moment, with a glut of salad greens. Not being much of a gardener, a friend suggested I start with something easy. It’s gone much better than I expected and now I’m burdened with way more kale, spinach, arugula and red leaf lettuce than I can possibly consume. After giving bags of it away, I’ve found myself wondering, could I wander down to the farmer’s market and make a little money with my harvest?  People do. But it’s not easy to turn a profit. For those with the fortitude and free time, Dave DeWitt has written a how-to-guide.
