Vail Simply Seasonal: Gardening at altitude - no small feat 27.4.2010 Vail Colorado: Our World
VAIL VALLEY, Colorado - The locavore craze has swept our nation and the Vail Valley. Restaurants use and promote local, natural, organic, farm fresh, sustainable ingredients. And why not - it's simply the right thing to do. But finding that fresh produce at 8,000 feet above sea level is no small feat. The long winters and short summers offer a much smaller window of opportunity for gardeners. "Patience is key - you have to be open to trial and error," said Kathie McNeill, maitre d' at Larkspur Restaurant. "It's rewarding to grow vegetables, and disappointing when some of your plans don't come to fruition." Yet, historically, the Vail Valley has been an abundant lettuce farming area. In the 1920s, Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch were home ...

The malt loaf marvel 27.4.2010 The Guardian -- Front Page
Does the enduring appeal of Britain's favourite proprietary malt loaf represent a rare triumph of experience over expectation, or is it because it's never going to be trendy? Soreen have just released a new ad . It isn't very good. Inspired, presumably, by the troupes of hopeful moppets on dreary Saturday night TV shows its weirdly monoracial, hyperactive meshes of cute and cool and its slogan – "Chew it, then do it" – are of near unmatched horror. No matter. The product is still a wonder, a brilliant and squidgy larder standby, cheaper than several brands of organic loaf and often nicer. Soreen has always seemed to me rather overlooked and underappreciated, perhaps because it tastes so much better than you'd expect, or perhaps because it's ...

Genetically Modified Crops Go to US High Court 26.4.2010 Truthout - All Articles

Washington - The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in its first-ever case involving genetically modified crops. The decision in this case may have a significant impact on both the future of genetically modified foods and government oversight of that and other environmental issues.

The case, Monsanto Co. v. Geertson Seed Farms, revolves around an herbicide-resistant alfalfa, the planting of which has been banned in the U.S. since a federal court prohibited the multinational Monsanto from selling the seeds in 2007.
