Keep in mind the difference between book learning and implementing processes and production.
Learning to manage the risks of daily market, weather, and equipment can only be learned by living it.
Youth serves you well if you learn faster than your body ages.
I have not given a lot of thought to this but there appear to be merits to it so use it as food for thought. If you can find 1 acre and have a market for direct sales. Grow an 1 acre of every crop you might grow for a career or in career field and a couple vegetables. Manage with what you have and you will learn management of complex holistic factors of growth and this will shape your thought process beyond book learning. Risk, failure, and achievement will be education. It may even replace a year of college learning at less cost. Goes with the phrase Just Do It. Pivot with skills learned to career and carry the knowledge through life. Could be a waste of time if you just learn. Much may also be learned from growing a tomato plant on a balcony or apartment window to a small degree.
