Any program that will allow someone to use land that would just sit fallow is a very good idea. Mixon has a residential base that can make selling the goods a no-brainer, they can see it growing, and maybe some of the crop can go to the local food bank and let some locals who don't live in Mixon experience some fresh foods. And the waste will be at a minimum, as most folks just don't care if there is a little "spot" on their lettuce, or cauliflower, or their greens. We just cut it off, or just eat it. Once in the pot, it all looks the same anyway. Good job Mixon, and the man who thought of this project.

Great article. Really nice to see the reality of farm to table.
Well Andy, I hope for your sake & especially your "POST" or the English thereof that you're not eating the "DIRT".
I'm really proud of the work we so. I've never seen another restaurant like us."
Walker guesses he loses
European eel is considered by some to be "critically endangered," while the Japanese species is perhaps in even worse shape.
North American eel harvests have always been far lower than the harvest of foreign species, by magnitudes. Presently the allowable harvests in Maine and Canada combined are under fifteen tons and actual catches about 2/3 of that amount. By contrast the Japanese and Europeans harvested glass eels by the hundreds of tons annually for over a decade.
Deepsea Throat calls the eel fishery "overregulated waste of time and joke." American eel has been reviewded for endangered species status by the U.S. government twice in the last ten years. Both times the agency said the eel population is below historic norms, however it is not in danger of extinction. In its most recent decision, October 2015, the Service cited improved regulation of the fishery as one of the reasons it is not endangered.
Fisherman should participate in the public forums where regulations are made in order to bring their real-world experience to the process. However, Deepsea is mistaken to call eel regulations a "joke." Without the regulations we would either lose the entire fishery or all the fish.

Addendum: man am I glad sothel farm is gone. Little did I know this was not a community garden so much as one strange, anti government man's attempt to start an out door social club. Not so much vegetables..... It was mostly outdoor tv, screaming children, barking dogs, golf balls being hit into my yard, firework shells in the summer. Like living with a public park right next to your yard where there's always a creepy guy using his truck as a boombox for shitty music....all day long

Yes he does localhutch
Wow, very proud of you...
Way to go uncle darren!
Does he sell quail eggs at the Farmer's Market? I have a wonderful appetizer that uses quail eggs, and I'd like some place I can buy them and know they are fresh.
Some of the best eggs, pork and chicken I've ever had. You can also buy local turkeys from him for thanksgiving. Go see him at the Summerville and mount pleasant farmers markets. Great guy and great stuff.
What a good story about a great guy.
Great article. Ward wears that Clemson tiger paw proudly. He's doing great work across the board, from organic experiments for national companies, to bringing back crops like African runner peanuts and "bloody butcher" corn. And his colleagues are making advancements with robot grafting of hardy root stock for crops that need it. I'm just a gushing fan of their work down the highway.
When it comes to classification, it's not that complicated, Jessica. The "field peas" of various varieties that are the subject of this story are all of the species Vigna unguiculata; English peas are the species Pisum sativum; most other string-bean, green-bean-type beans are Phaseolus vulgaris. Chick peas (aka Garbanzo Beans) are Cicer arietinum. When it comes to plants (and animals), species is definitive--what people may call it colloquially varies wildly. Cultivars and individuals of a species may vary in appearance--red tomatoes, yellow tomatoes--but are in almost every respect the same biologically.
Someone tried to tell me Denny Bryant invented the boiled Peanut. What a goober.
We have found quail farming very beneficial especially for quail eggs which we also dehydrate and make into powder. Nissi farm. www.petersonsozichicken.com
son, I was "out of the Libtard box" before your Daddy reached puberty. The attack was because the majority of your comments show you have no real grasp of reality. Your diatribes against Liberals show that you're trying to drink the Party kool-aid, but your not yet of age.
