Re: Never kill a black snake

Among other things, yes, they eat rats.

And just as an aside, some of the old world rat snakes do have venom, but not enough to be considered dangerous to humans; not the new world rat snakes,...

Re: Never kill a black snake

Oh, javalinas would eat some snakes, small ones possibly- but they are not an animal one wants around.

They aren't pigs, but are maybe more dangerous than wild hogs are and very dangerous to...

Re: okra need advice

Re: okra need advice

Joseph, grilled okra is also very good, as is the standard gumbos. We use very small pods for most everything, even for pickling ( great with garlic hot pepper dill mix).

Not counting the cap...

Re: Consumers Will Soon Have Devices In Their Hands To Detect GMO and Toxic Foods

Oh, there will be a big problem even if they could get this off the ground. Per the article, it lists both an immune system protein and DNA. If either were to be able to sense any form of those in a...

Re: So-called 'Trillion Meal Study' of GMO Safety is Junk

Re: Myth: GM farmers “drown” crops in “dangerous” glyphosate.

Way of topic, let's move back to the matter at hand in this topic, please.

Amounts and where/how used are important when using chemicals, "organic" or not.

Re: 29-Year 100 Billion Animal Study Reinforces Safety Of GM Foods

LOL, talk about some serious data twisting in OO's posted article. Dairy cows are kept longer than four years on average, chickens don't gain more weight eating gmo grains- that is not what the gmo...

Re: EPA: Those Bee-Killing Pesticides? They're Actually Pretty Useless

Re: Syngenta Destroys US Corn Sales to China

So in either of your examples, how is Sygenta responsible?

Like I said earlier, it's a nuisance suit and deserves to have the court costs and lawyers fees paid by the farmers. Perhaps they will...

Re: Syngenta Destroys US Corn Sales to China

It's anti gmo reporting - anything that can be negative about gmo's is posted and spread by anti gmo'ers. LOL.

Re: NFU calls for review of neonicotinoid ban

Re: Syngenta Destroys US Corn Sales to China

Either the crops were cross pollinated or were not cross pollinated with the claimed variety- which is legal to grow in the USA.

Re: growing pumpkins

You can also eat pumpkin flowers, just as you do squash flowers. Pull the stamen and stuff with sausage mixture and batter, deep fry or?? yum!

Great if you are getting a lot of male flowers.
