    This has been a popular thread. Maybe next year we should have a farmers/fishin get together. We could each bring what ever we grow and give it out to each other and maybe do a lil fishin too. You know cuz it is a fishin forum:). I always grow way more than we can ever eat.

    I raised chickens, geese, ducks, guinea fowl, and rabbits, using the manure for my garden; now I use just the grounds that Starbucks gives away in huge amounts.

    My garden on May 4 and June 4. Planted a couple seeds from a spaghetti squash from Vons, must have harvested 80. We catch more than we can eat too. I do a couple freezer trips a year and CPR most of the shore fish I catch.

    Rare to have much success from store-bought seed, which are usually hybrids. Beautiful garden. I have some free non hybrid vegetable seeds if you’re interested.

    You are right to a certain degree but all vegetables we eat today have been bred, evolved and improved from their native ancestors by plant breeders over many many years. Sometimes the seeds will reproduce a similar plant and sometimes they won’t. In this day and age I doubt there is a true non-hybrid vegetable seed.

    Big push in Imperial Valley to grow hemp for CBD oil production. Over 1,500 acres planted so far using both seed and transplants. It will be interesting to see if it comes to a crashing halt if the plants are cross pollinated with marijuana.

    Natural hybrids are much different than triploid (pollen-sterile) or gene-spliced seed.

    Not really legal yet to grow hemp or the real thing in Imperial Valley unless you are part of a scientific study. The catch is that it is still illegal to grow the two crops using water from a Federal project i.e., Imperial Dam and the All American Canal. Legislation on both state and federal levels are in the works but not yet law. Well water is too salty in the IV to grow anything.

    I heard the tax revenue is way short of what Sacramento was hoping for.
