Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Except that processors have been using Roundup as drying aget and all oats have a detectable residue.
I'm not an organic fan, but eating weedkiller is a bridge too far.
BTW, due to the stress of family death andmedical emergency, I have neglected my garden this year, not even putting out the red sticky spheres to trap insects. I'm eating organic apples from the yard. After cutting around the worm holes, they are quite tasty. All varieties are two weeks early. Pears are two weeks early too. I think it's the hot summer we had. No peaches which are usually reliable. Must have been that minus 40 wind chill record that killed all the buds. The three trees have a big canopy now from new growth but I can walk upright under all the peach trees because all the previous years' (plural) growth died.

I think Global Warming came knocking in Illinois this year. Commercial corn farmers have extremely poor crops due to monsoon rains in Spring and Early summer. Now the Chinese don't want to buy what little corn and soybeans they have to sell.
