SUN COUNTRY: Rural electric co-ops deliver power to 42 million Americans β€” and they're on track to DOUBLE theirΒ solar capacity in 2017!
.
Thanks to a toolkit developed by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)Β with support from our SunShot Initiative, co-ops across the nation are adding more solar photovoltaic systems like this two-megawatt CoServ installation on a peanut farm in Krugerville, Texas. The toolkit is a ready-to-use set of standard engineering designs, financing models, templates, tools, and plans, and its suite of materials offers best practices designed to reduce solar adoption costs and help co-ops across the country integrate solar.
.
Through this project, NRECA is also supporting the deployment of more than 23 megawatts of utility-scale PV in 15 states, helping provide hundreds of rural communities with access to affordable, renewable solar electricity generation.

Redbud tree. (They look purple from the road) And guess what? It's more than just a pretty thing to look at in the spring. Turns out the Native Americans would boil the bark to treat whooping cough and dysentery. The roots and inner bark were used to treat fevers, congestion, and vomiting. AND YOU CAN EAT THE FLOWERS. (Update: reaction in my story)

🐝 honeybees use the flower for pollenβ €

Thought of Cher @sunnydaysfarm and her beloved Sunny while walking through all the lambs today. This little "monster& #34; just couldn't believe a big, strong horse like Sunny would tremble in fear at the sight of him. πŸ˜‚ He says hello and boo to Sunny, I mean Baaaa! πŸ˜‚ #sweckerfarm #littlelambstory #lambsofinstagram #sheeplove #sheepfarm #sheepofinstagram #springishere #babyanimals #countrylife #farmlife #farmliving #rural_life #ruralamerica #rural_love #pocket_farms

Things are starting to green up. Now if the sunshine and 50 degree twmps stick around, I would be one happy camper.

I remember when you were bright and shiny and new ✨

What's in your home apothecary? (Witch doctor cabinet, natural medicine cabinet, whatever you want to call it). Comment below or post a photo (tag me in it/#folkapothecary ) because I'd love to share it in the post I'm working on! Even if you just have a few things you should share!

...to whatever ancient spirits might still abide here,
that they might awaken from this strange dream,
in which there are fences and stables and a man
who doesn’t know a single word they understand. --- from After a Rainstorm by Robert Wrigley

It's hard to see, but there is a wonderful folk art hand-carved horse or mule on the keystone of the arch. Above that, the name of the Creek Indian stone mason is also hand carved: Corner Hawkins, June 28, 1928. On a large cornerstone are carved several names & descriptive info, including W. M. Parks, Colored; T. Walker, Choctaw. This beautiful old stable or barn is west of Eufaula near Hanna, Oklahoma.

Another great old motel sign.
Windsor, VT is an intriguing old industrial town on the Connecticut River with an eye magnetic Main Street to show for it, as well as the fitting home of the American Precision museum in an old mill complex - and the country's oldest penitentiary turned into some seriously gothic condos. The building is so huge it's a serious surprise to see it in town.
The area is quiet nowadays, because Interstate 91 bypassed it in the 70s, eliminating lots of passing traffic on Route 5. Which is a shame because Rte 5 and the upper river valley is a cool region to travel through.

There's not much more beautiful to me this time of year than flowering redbuds against the backdrop of an old brick building and a fast flowing stream! #caneyfork #rockisland #rockislandstatepark #redbuds #naturelover #nature #naturephotography #walkabout #walk #hiker #hike #hikes #rural_love #rural #ruralamerica #appalachia #appalachian #uppercumberland

Attempted to go back roading today with a buddy, which was really just us sliding around wash boarded, muddy dirt roads a lot and wondering if it was a good idea.
We found ourselves at the foot of the Waterbury Dam, a huge CCC project from the late 30s that flooded out a village once in the hills above our parking spot. I was digging the Art Deco detailing I was seeing.

Sheep, lots of sheep and the sheep herder from Peru. My great grandpa was a sheep herder, I can't even imagine how tough he was #sheep #livestock #sheepherder #ruralamerica #backroads #utahisrad #utah #weareutah #horse #dogs
