We wrap up our corn harvest week with this one last picture of a Corn Shucking. I have to admit I have enjoyed looking at all this corn this week.
I was with some friends this week and the topic of Genetically Modified Corn came up. Of course, most people are against these genetically engineered strains. One guy actually works for one of the huge seed companies, and he said that the world was totally dependent on Genetically Engineered Corn, and if we suddenly had to go back to plain old fashioned corn seed, there would be massive and widespread famine. This is because not only do we eat corn, but the other things we eat (chickens, cows, pigs, etc) eat corn. That we have gone past the point of no return on these seeds. Sort of scary that we have gotten to this point.
