  7. Cool free book on Plant Food Processing Tools at Early Neolithic Göbekli Tepe.
  8. Digitizing a million herbarium specimens in Australia. How many crop wild relatives, I wonder?

  10. How to talk about mezcal using all the right words.
  11. A paean to the mango.
  12. Agriculture should be more “probiotic.” Mezcal, coconuts and mangoes would probably help.
