HAHAHAHAHA! This is hilarious! So, do you think the salmon bill is going to pass?

So did you ruin the fun by pointing them out to Anna or let her find them on her own?

Maggie and Justus --- I know! Isn't he clever? :-)

Justus --- I haven't actually been following the legal battle. It just feels too big for our farm, like a lot of politics. The closest it will come to affecting us either way is in the store bought feed we give to our chickens, and we're slowly weaning ourselves off that anyway....

Heath --- I'm such a busybody, I had to know what he was doing, so I saw him put it into place. That would have made quite a good April Fool's Day trick, though, if he was more wily! Maybe one of you will try it if there are still daffodils around in two weeks and report back... :-)

If you could get them to reproduce, you'd really be on to something!

This was funny at first, then when I read it a monsanto product I fell on the floor laughing. After watching food, inc we have come to dislike that company and the wife actually turned down a grant opportunity because it was funded by them. So great funny here!

Roland --- Heh! Just like our original dreams of a daffodil farm...but different.

Dave --- I'm so glad it made you laugh!
