It’s that time of year with the silage season in full swing. With another dry week forecasted across Ireland, farmers will continue to have plenty of opportunities to bring in the silage. I took this photo near Nohoval, Co.Cork

Significance Of Today
Today is International Day for Biological Diversity. Biodiversity, or having lots of different kinds of life, is a sign of a healthy ecosystem. The prevalence of monoculture farming in the world has led to some rather dramatic and drastic consequences.
Unknown to most consumers, most of the world only consumes one type of banana, and that isn’t the same kind that was being eaten only a few decades ago. Due to monoculture farming, an entire species of banana was wiped out by disease, leading to the cultivation of our present strain. Without biodiversity, we’re currently set up for the same thing to happen all over again.
Interesting Quote for Today
‘One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.’ ~Dale Carnegie
