    Can Plants "Talk" To Each Other?

    I have heard news stories about this in the recent past, but I still can't wrap my head around it. I would like to believe they can, but how? I'm just not understanding that part.

    Set Prices

    So...........why can't farmers set their own price for their own crops? They are manufacturing something consumers either want or need, but they cannot determine the price by which they can sell their product. Coca-Cola does the same thing, but they determine whether a can of Coke cost 10c or 1...

    Politics Over The Virus

    I know what happened in D.C. on the 6th was historic and should have taken front and center in the news, so I'm glad it did. But even before that, it seems the news focuses more on the election than the continuing Covid crisis. It's getting worse and no one in the media takes it as seriously as...

    I was hearing some commentary on the radio yesterday that was heartening. Meat prices are higher than usual, but this is temporary.

    How Low Can They Go?

    It is not hard at all for me to find gas for $1.91 a gallon these days. I'm loving this. The prices have been dropping steadily for about 2 months now and I have to wonder, what is the lowest it is going to get? .50c?

    What Is It About Cabbage?

    Those things are heavy feeders I know, but I don't know why. Anybody here know? It's kind of a pain knowing that one grow is taking more out of the soil than the others.

    Turning Crop Acreage Into Pasture Acreage

    Has anyone here done this conversion? If so, how did it work out for you? Many people have told me that making money off of grazing land is a lot less volatile, less monetary risk if you will, than growing crops and people new to this industry would much rather go the grazing route.

    Pancreatic cancer for example is caused by, among other factors, abnormal sugar levels. One could make the argument then that the pancreas is allergic to too much sugar. Much the same way that a liver is "allergic" to too much alcohol. The allergic reaction being the eventual failure of the...

    Clearing This Land

    What would be the best way to clear this patch of land I have? From the pictures, you can see how some of it slopes. This part of the land especially, the dirt is loose.......meaning it is very soft to walk on and we haven't had substantial rain for a few months. It's always like that. The dirt...
