Got an email from National Geographic and one of the articles was about how the Netherlands is the second largest exporter of food in the world... second only to the US and we have 200%+ more land. That's crazy!
How'd they do that?
Greenhouses! They're everywhere and they are multistory, robust, and technologically advanced! I like playing in the dirt and if I could do it all over again I'd probably been some kind of a farmer/homesteader living somewhere semi off-grid but I've always intended to supplement the farm income with greenhouses.
This article just makes me want re-double my efforts to get out of the office rat race.

I only get one free article a month because apparently I don't have a subscription (thought I did) so hopefully the link works for everyone.
