Re: Corn Rights

No legs.

The corn was legal and approved in this country, where it was sold. Unless Sygenta advertised that it could be sold to China, the suit is simply a joke.

Best see who pays for the costs...

Re: peanutbutter the awful truth

If you would use butter on the page(bread), then PB, it won't stick. Are the pages difficult to bite through?

Re: Scattering Seeds

It also depends on the effect you want- such as a bed area versus a meadow land look.

I have always started my seed pretty much in either seed flats or solo type cups and then put them where I...

Re: Eat More Kale Wins!

Interesting story and nice to see a little guy win one, plus it was probably great experience for the law students as well.

Re: Hemp Seeds

As long as the beetles leave the Twinkies and Doritos alone, we'll be okay with that. Oh, and the queso dip, they can't have that, either.

Re: The Blonde Vegan -- No Longer

Yes, you are correct- we are omnivores, but our eyes are facing forward and yes, we can and do digest raw meat just fine.

Re: What $20million can buy you

In some states, it did pass, but with restrictions requiring other states also pass bills; then there is what, Maine?, or Vermont, that is in a lawsuit now?

Re: What $20million can buy you

So, then don't buy processed foods.

According to your previous posts on this forum, you purchase little to no processed foods, so why so vehement about other people's food choices? Boycott away...

Re: The Blonde Vegan -- No Longer

I agree- if humans were meant to eat only a vegan diet, why is our physiology that of a predator?!!

It's like trying to feed a cat a vegan diet. Can it be done? yes, but the cat's health will...

Re: Seed trading/gifting now a crime in Minnesota

Re: Hemp Seeds

I watched about half of it, and while I agree that hemp has a lot of uses, I don't buy into the "super foods" thing at all for any food.

I do wish it was legal to grow hemp again.

Re: Peter Peppers?

I've grown it here in Texas, but it's a thinner walled pepper and there are better ones out there. It was productive enough, and funny enough, but the pepper part of the flavor wasn't all that.

Re: Seed trading/gifting now a crime in Minnesota

I agree also- there is not enough threat or profit for "Big Ag" to waste their money on it would seem- more like some one has an authority bug up their behind and is being a fool with it.

Re: Organic Farmers Pay the Price for GMO Contamination

Good thing it isn't, as far as a lot of farmers and consumers feel about gmos.

Re: correlation of glysophate use with disease: 12 charts

One cannot prove anything is "safe", one can prove that a product does not harm the target market for the product.

Gmos have had both long term and short term, and medium term studies done showing...

Re: correlation of glysophate use with disease: 12 charts

I doubt most consumers really care much about gmos at all, otherwise those products would not be bought- both by the farmers and the people buying food.

The legally required studies have been paid for so...

Re: Seed trading/gifting now a crime in Minnesota

How does this make sense re profit for "Big Ag"?

Small time seed swapping and trading, along with seed gifts won't impact the profits of the big seed companies very much if at all.
