The pandemic is sort of over, but we're waiting to see what will happen when school starts, and worrying whether we have enough social distance from Missouri. The garden, not so long ago full of hope, is growing up in weeds, waiting for a decision on whether to plant more seeds or just let it go. There is a lull now before the State Fair kicks off a busier fall. It's a time of transition, a time to be thankful we've survived, and to think about what we've learned during the shutdown. How, informed by the experience, will we do things differently in the future? – Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
