In case anyone missed the news, this year we broke the 2007 arctic ice minimum record...about a month earlier in the season. The arctic ice should continue to decrease for another few weeks. Sorry for the news, but important.

I'm completely with you on the adaptation. I'm still hoping for wood chip to biochar energy plants and incredible new solar technologies (I've got one I'm struggling along with, no cigar yet), but adaptation seems like the mature reaction even if tech fixes are followed full steam ahead. That's why we're on this board, yes.smile

This always makes me want to ask everyone what plants they are seeking/desiring for their landscapes. As some of us try to grow some of the same plants it makes a lot of sense to do some efficient division of labor in sourcing and seed starting. Would love to see a list of what everyone is looking for (as well as what everyone might be trying to breed). Right now I'm trying to hunt down Vaccinium praestans, the Kamchatka bilberry. http://www.pfaf.org/u...­
I put in a GRIN request for seeds and am waiting to see if they'll send them for this evaluation. It's like a low ground cover blueberry, but red and delicious with some strawberry tones. I want to evaluate it's ground cover attributes and report back to folks here on how it performs locally. I also just got some perennial beet green seeds that I'll test and if it survives I'll try to cross it with Swiss Chard to make some perennial chard. Hoping that can make a great salad/cooking green ground cover.
