Re: Minnesota Midget Melons

I was impressed with them and especially liked the smaller size- easier to get eaten up quickly. I found them pretty productive, too.

Re: Missouri amendment 1

Okay, Billy, you would vote "No.", but why?

I'm not seeing any scary language in the bill, other than some vague /lack of definition of terms, so I am trying to get why it's an issue,

Can you...

Re: Missouri amendment 1

Haven't found it yet in the bill, or anything leading to Monsanto or the Chinese.

Re: Golden Rice

I do know there is sometimes squashes and sweet potatoes in some Chinese dishes I've had, also carrots. I just don't know if they grow enough of those, or if you could persuade those people in those...

Re: Golden Rice

I have seen both brown rice and red rice as well as white rice in Chinese cuisine in China. There is also that black rice, very pricey though here. And many varieties of "white" rice.

I've also...

Re: Golden Rice

Might work in some of the areas, but also rice is a big part of Philippine and asian cooking. Maybe not enough land suitable to carrots, squash and sweet potatoes?

Re: Missouri amendment 1

Bunkie, can you point out where in the bill's language that says it's protecting Monsanto or big ag or China?

I'm not seeing it there at all.

Re: raw milk

I wouldn't if I knew about it, and if I was drinking raw milk, I'd know even more than this about the farm and farmer, LOL.

We all grew up drinking raw milk- strained and cooled down, but not much...

Re: Golden Rice

There are several varieties of the Golden Rice- most are locally adapted varieties with nothing more than the addition of the gene that allows it to express the pre cursor.

This is often why I...

Re: Golden Rice

Again, the thing with the Golden Rice being killed off all over the world at one time is beyond a science fiction thing. Too many varieties of it, too many conditions for it to grow in, unless of...

Re: pole pea?

I've always liked Tall Telephone or Alderman for pole peas. I also prefer pole type peas for the same reasons and the harvest is spread out longer for us, too.

I can't recall the names for sure,...

Sorry, but you are incorrect, in my opinion.

Seralini's "study" still has the same flaws it had in the first place- you might want to read up on that.

Re: Golden Rice

Once yet again, I did not say the FDA has a say on it, not now. As I previously explained, I used the FDA requirements since it's in English and thus easy for many to read.

It will be marketed in this country, oh yes, eventually- but right now they are looking to get it where it can do the most good for people and that comes first.
