A very happy almost summer, MNN readers!
As is customary during the change of seasons, I'm embracing my nostalgic side and taking a look back at this spring's weirdest, wildest, and most well-trafficked posts — stories that you may have overlooked while you were busy contemplating cricket-based cuisine
, plotting a Swedish vacation
, or installing a touchless toilet flush kit
. You know, normal springtime stuff.
Like the season itself, this spring's stories were, well, all over the place — and in the best way possible. While I published a decent amount of posts touching down on the usual suspects — cargotecture, micro-housing, landscaping squabbles, resilient architecture, conservation, humanitarian-minded design, and smart home gadgetry — this spring was also heavy on stories about inventive — and at times, unusual — green energy initiatives geared to help lift us from our dependence on nonrenewable resources.
What’s been your favorite post of mine from this past spring? Was there a particular story that I missed out on that you would like to have seen featured? Are there any topics that you'd like to see me tackle this summer and beyond? I'm all ears! And if you aren't already, please do follow me
