That Survivaball thing was funny, Wrenn. I didn't finish the Wal-Mart
article.

I lean (in theory) toward Permaculture...the way Bill Mullison
describes it. There's a little heathen doubt mixed in with my
enthusiasm (instead of 100% Faith), however. When you look at what
Africans do with so little rain it would seem even homeowners in the
eastern U.S. with backyards could grow significant amounts of food.

I have questions about where to get unGM'd tomato plant seeds.

Who was that woman on PBS' "Now" that had to shut down her organic
farm...as pollen from GM'd crops was wafting in?

I have questions about how to deal organically with fire ants.
They're not here yet, thank God. Could anteaters take GA winters btw?

What's a plant that can grow relatively prolifically at the desert's
edge...and thus move the boundary in a bit...and lower temp too???
[Someone suggested one here before, but I forgot what they said.] I
recently saw some vines that grow prolifically in almost pure sand.
The had waxy shiny leaves on one side...round IIRC like a tear drop
with one point at tip, and they crimped and folded up a bit. Anyone
have any articles discussing how raindrops coalesce around bacteria
(or pollen?) blown off the leaves of tea plants? Will have to listen
to Bill Mullison again re that question.

When hurricanes come this time I'd love to have some 4 x 8 plywd
sheets just to lean over the windows [afterwards when power's
out]....with rows of photovoltaic cells mounted thereupon; but I
don't know the 1st thing about where to get 'em or how to wire 'em
up...or cost.
