Millennial Farmer – Harvesting Sugarcane

You should add Millienial Farmer to your social media feed.  Zach Johnson is a Minnesota Farmer that brings the world with him to work.  He talks plainly about the challenges and realities of farming.

This episode finds him traveling to Florida where crops are very different from Minnesota (or Indiana).  See the harvest of sugarcane and head lettuce in this video.

NOTE – this is a 20+ minute video.  For more information, be sure to read the show notes.

The Great Recycling Myth

You recycle, don’t you?  You don’t worry about all the (cheap) plastic water bottles, soda bottles, and other plastic goods, because you toss them in the recycle bin, right?

I’ve been a big believer in REDUCE-REUSE-RECYCLE being practiced in that order.  I live in a rural area where recycling is difficult to accomplish, so in our family, we try to prioritize REDUCE and REUSE and create less of the RECYCLE.

This video suggests that REDUCE-REUSE should be the priority for everyone – the “RECYCLE” part is mostly a myth.
