My Mom has been going crazy with information on genetically modified foods [GM foods or GMOs]. She is concerned that we are being sterilized as a civilization; mind, body, just take it all. One of the fun things we like to do is cruise the local farmer’s markets for fun and interesting fruits, veggies and pure cane Cokes Not only does it boost our local economy, but it also ensures that we grow a relationship with those who grow our natural foods and understand the importance of healthy food choices, beginning with the seed.
Spring is upon us and that means glorious amounts of new fresh food crops will be loaded into the local fresh markets. Sometimes these foods are a little bit more expensive than your chain grocery stores, but you are paying for care attention of food crops that the grocery stores just don’t put to heart.

PS – I heard on KSBJ just this morning that a scientist is working on a mutated organism that will be “hamburger of the future”, blech!
