    They may be edible and all but they taste like crap, that's what's wrong with them.

    We were picking wild plums off the fence row across from our place yesterday, neighbor walked over to chat. He told us we could pick off some other trees right down the fence. Only problem with that, those trees are persimmons. Poor dummy, he would shortly starve if the food train ever got cut off.

    People don’t know jacksh!t about real living.

    sadly, in England, they will not even be able to do THAT soon-- Kitchen knives are illegal now, or shortly will be. How long before the US follows them down that rabbit hole?

    WHAT??? That's not even good thinking.

    I have a lot of very sharp knives and intend to keep them in my house! USA can't agree on gun control, don't think they will consider knives any time soon. Of course, no NRA type association to fight, or support candidates.

    Monsanto name might be dead, but the evil behind it persists. When Monsanto was still independant, many farmers bought their seeds from them. If they were caught saving seeds to plant next year, Monsanto sued them. Many farmers lost eveything they had.
    Sometimes competing farmers would turn them in.
    Now that Bayer owns the company, dont expect any changes. The same practices used before will still be used. People who dont know how to grow thier own food are going to be sorry they dont know how.

    Does everyone know that many garden seeds are owned by Monsanto? Early Girl tomato is a hugely popular hybrid tomato that Monsanto owns, purchased in 2005.

    If you don't want to support Monsanto, you can't just buy from Gurney's or your local garden center. Johnny's and Baker Creek are better seed sources.
