    There is no food securtiy any more, you really have no idea whats been done to them at any point between the grower and down the line til you buy it and put it in your mouth.

    Is anyone growing all their own beans, corn and/or grain?
    I'm mainly doing 'green' crops this year as opposed to those for drying,but its on my long term plan to grow these as well.
    I havent been interested in grains particularly as I dont eat alot of bread(maybe thats because bought bread doesnt taste that great anymore), but I would like to know what sort of beans and corn would be best to grow for drying.
    I dont really know anything about Amaranth either although I have heard its supposed to be a good crop to grow.
    Michaelangelica,
    Where do you find these interesting tidbits?
