    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.

    FRIED SQASH BLOSSOMS
    1. Gently dip zucchini blossoms in beaten egg and shake off the excess. Press into flour; coat with bread crumbs. Place breaded blossoms on a plate; do not stack.
    2. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry blossoms, working in batches, until both sides are golden brown, about 5 minutes each side.

    We planted late due to the long cold winter. Didn't get to excited over it and only planted a couple things. My neighbor with the big time serious garden didn't even plant this year. I was shocked. I planted tomotoes, jalapenos, basil, and thyme. Not near producing yet. Except for the basil which took off so quickly I have already made some yummy food using it. The garden still holds my rosemary and oregano. When I planted I cut them back enough to fill a huge rubber tub. Nobody out here even wanted to come pick some up to cook dinner - their loss. The plants still need another cut back. Herbs love this place. 110 degrees or snow, nothing kills them. I'll take a pic and post it when it's not raining and thundering as it is now.
