Shoutout to Freshman Farmers
I recently came across the Freshman Farmer blog (thanks, Bridgett!) and it is awesome! A collection of young farmers blog about what’s happening on their farms. There are some great photo slideshows of life on the farm and the posts are written with great voice and funny! For example, here’s some Farmer Math:
Silence! The units are a little different, but the concept is very familiar. Observe:
P(Rain) = Q(Uncovered Wood)/Q(All Wood) U “Oh, it’s not going to rain this week.”
This formula illustrates the probability of rain as being equal to the percentage of vulnerable wood you left exposed after saying, “Oh, it’s not going to rain this week.”
But we are not done yet. Notwithstanding the above:
P(Rain)=0 if TankRefill () = False
This states that no matter what, it will not rain if you don’t refill the water tank.
