More on the discussion of orlah outside of the land of Israel, with some sharp disagreement by the sages. Plus, according to those who say there is orlah outside of Israel, how should it be treated? Also, when a couple of sages spot someone planting kilayim – and how they react to him. Also, a new mishnah! On the value of doing mitzvot, including the rewards that are known for them.

Plus, the death of Hutzpit the Translator.
