Notes on Literature, Nature, Working Dogs, History, Other Obsessions and Sundry Annoyances
I love it. Actually, I'm surprised it took them this long to respond.I think Monsanto's prevailing hope was that it could co-opt Whole Foods Market and simply supply "organic ready" hybrid produce to the high-heeled WFM shoppers.But wait! The economy! People are re-discovering their backyards and re-purposing them as miniature Whole Foods Markets serving FREE FOOD DAILY.Just think how large a cow Big Ag would have if the average American provided even as little as 10% his food needs through gardening and hunting? It would be a big cow, but with all the growth hormone and antibiotics injected into it, who would still want to eat it?
I like your "10 percent" figure. It seems like such a reasonble number, though I suspect I'd be suprised at how many vegetables, squirrels, quail, woodcock, catfish and bream that would be. Still, I'm tempted to put pencil to paper and finger to calculator.
