Some of the best advice is recycled from the past

Listen to this segment from the show that aired February 3, 2018

I saw this tweet the other day, and I was struck by two things: First, it's really good advice (and I'm glad our fellow Iowans are doing things like it). Second, it's exactly the same advice I read in an old book a long time ago:


An early-1900s farming textbook I bought and read some time ago talks about the importance of planting evergreens on the north and west sides of a farmstead to provide protection from prevailing winter winds. This "living snow fence" approach is a great modern extension of good old advice.

Anytime you're given the option to make a decision with lasting, durable benefits instead of taking the temporary way out, it's worth running the life-cycle cost analysis. Or, in other words, what's worth doing is worth doing well.
