Wow, just look at this corn. To think, most of the corn grown now is some GMO experimental bastardization of what corn could be. Here's the story about Glass Gem.
This morning, I am shelling dried pole bean seed. It's a seed from Jeff's grandfather that he called "Rattlesnake Beans". It is shocking to learn how many varieties have disappeared in the last hundred years.
It is also scary that seed can be patented. Farmers whose fields are infected by GMO seed are found guilty of owning the seed they didn't want and didn't plant! What a world.....
