Hope everyone had a safe and celebratory 4th of July!  Here are this week’s headlines.

Small-Scale Farmers Creating a New Business Model as Agriculture Goes Local – Yes, yes, yes!

City of Detroit and Michigan State University Agree to Pursue an Urban Agriculture Research Program – Another uplifting headline.

 Midwest Corn Crop Shrivels in Fields – “Just saw a field, thought it was onions—nope corn…” said Ashley Gulke, an analyst and farmer.

Roads Across US Buckle from Heat – It’s really hot, all across the USA.  We are still dealing with fires here in CO, and I found myself wondering if/when states in the Midwest and East will be impacted by wildfires.

Comments welcome!
