Response to HuckleB (Reply #73)

Thu Nov 20, 2014, 07:50 PM

74. No, I just don't know what you're talking about.

In this set of replies, I believe my initial response was to something like 'Why aren't farmers jumping on heritage seeds'. I took that as a statement about large commercial farmers, since, of course, many small farmers and gardeners actually do keep planting heritage crops. So I pointed out that niche farming takes a lot more work to get established, and is possibly more economically unstable than monoculture. Obviously, there still are a number of niche market farmers who take the time and the risks, and, as you pointed out, also the rewards. But of course, the more people who grow any given niche product, the fewer rewards there are as supply grows relative to demand.

Your response to that was something about me not wanting farmers to make a living, which seemed totally unrelated to what I wrote.

So no, I don't know how dumb you are, or how dumb you look. I just don't know what the heck you're talking about.
