Jason Mraz a farmer, too?

Mother Nature Network highlights 40 Farmers under 40 and singer/songwriter Jason Mraz makes the list? I had no idea he grew avocados!
Singer/songwriter Jason Mraz has produced a bounty of melodic pop-rock songs since hitting it big with his sophomore album, Mr. A-Z, in 2005. (His 2008 follow-up, We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things., has sold 2.5 million copies.) But reggae- and folk-inflected ditties aren't the only sweet crops Mraz harvests — the Virginia native is also an enthusiastic avocado farmer. After buying five acres in an agricultural area of San Diego, he settled in and began farming the pear-shaped, green-skinned fruits. He also installed a solar-power system on his farm to let the sun fuel more than just his plants. - Mother Nature Network
Too cool!

Jason Mraz is the man. He could write a song about avocados and it would sound fantastic.
