Buckle up, folks, it’s Friday and if you’re in the DMV, it’s going to be a rainy and windy one. (This will save me many hours of gardening work because my paper yard waste bags will get soaked and that’s not fair to do to my local public works.) I hope you have some good books on hand and charge your devices! Or don’t and sit in the dark in blissful silence!
This week’s must read: America’s farmers are feeling the heat from climate change (The Invading Sea) Mary Anna Mancuso brings us this piece, in which she notes, “The good news is that farmers — especially those generational farmers whose family heritage with the land runs in their blood — know their land and are tuned into its changes. And many in the agricultural industry are ready to be part of the climate solution by adopting eco-friendly and economically beneficial practices such as no-till farming, crop rotation and agrivoltaics, the dual use of land for farming and solar production. Even solar grazing, where livestock literally graze under the shade-providing solar panels, is catching on.”
(Like how I delivered the good news there?)
