oyster-farm-200.jpgTamar Haspel and her husband started an oyster farm at the age of fifty, and it turns out farming oysters is kind of a pain in the ass: "To grow things with roots or legs, you also don't need to wear waders, which, after a brief introductory watertight period, invariably leak, and, as a bonus, make you look like Tweedledum. You don't need to worry about your crop floating off to Portugal if it's not properly secured. You don't have to check a tide chart before you schedule a doctor's appointment....All things considered, it's hard to figure out why I like it so much." [Gilt Taste]
