seed and vine

If I was a packrat I would ratpack these.

Seeds. They seem like such a small thing when compared to the big, complex problems the world is facing—climate change, poverty, war, famine, peak oil and an exploding population. They’re so small, in fact, that most will fit easily under your thumb.

But stop and think again.

Our nearby Heirloom Tomato crowd is hoping tomato vines are another wine biz. Speaking of wine. Didya believe the studies showing blindfolded wine connoisseurs are fooled by cheaper wines? Is buying prestige “getting a placebo effect from a drug when you know it’s a placebo“?
