Hurray, Marlene Sabba !!! I am fortunate enough to be in a position to learn about such things. Did you ever see the tomatoes that sprout ‘ INSIDE’ of themselves and GROW out through the skin??? It really makes me ill and most folks are so busy just trying to survive that they are unaware of the control issues affecting the things we consume etc. etc. Bravo to you.

You failed to mention that potatoes today are grown from genetically modified seeds. The results from the use of these seeds is yet undetermined, but it is resistant to bugs and weeds from organisms modified by the poison Round-up, which we are ingesting. These seeds are banned in 30 countries – but not in the U.S. – yet.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
