Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Case for g-e salmon doesn’t hold water
Portland Press Herald - 10/13/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – If you happened to catch my column last week, you'll recall that I wrote about the bid by biotech firm AquaBounty to get its fast-growing, genetically engineered Atlantic salmon approved by the Food and Drug Administration. I discussed the company's submission of sloppy research and the FDA's disregard of public comment on the matter.
A rare opportunity for these fruits, veggies
Portland Press Herald - 10/13/2010.
By Meredith Goad – Bowdoinham: Chris Cavendish clipped a bright, stunning red pepper from a group of about 30 plants he tended this year at Fishbowl Farm. He took a big bite right where he stood, and the Jimmy Nardello sweet Italian frying pepper, named after a 19th-century seed saver, rewarded him with a satisfying crunch and burst of flavor.
A crisp in the middle makes a rich apple pie
Bangor Daily News - 10/13/2010.
By Sandy Oliver – Last week we had an Apple Galette that was pie-like, but this week we have an actual apple pie – a rich version of one. I picked this recipe up in 1974, which makes it practically antique. It is luscious with a meltingly gooey apple filling. When I assemble it I’m reminded that the recipe seems to call for an apple crisp between piecrusts.
Scarborough looks at limits on pesticides
Portland Press Herald - 10/11/2010.
By Ann S. Kim – Scarborough will consider restricting the use of weed killers and other chemicals on municipal property.
