Corn used to be King in the vegetable world. Vegetable farmers, backyard farmers all loved growing corn. Industrial farmers loved growing various types of corn too. Then by-products of corn and GMO corn got lots of bad PR. What is the corn industry to do? They needed to get some good PR and up popped Kale.
There is no question that Kale is good for you. It is a healthy vegetable. That said, I still hate the Kale. I was duped by the Kale PR machine a few years ago and grew it in my garden. I had the same problem like everyone with a CSA subscription.
What to do with all the Kale? The Kale chips aren’t too bad but let’s not kid our selves; they are no substitute for potato chips!
Kale grows easily and fast in cool and warm climates. Kale seems to be disease resistant. Kale is considered very healthy. No one is complaining about how Kale is grown and hence it took the pressure off the poor corn! No one until now!
Corn industry, buck up! Stop using GMO seeds and harmful pesticides and just grow corn organically or as organically as possible. Who wants to eat food from an animal that eats corn that has been grown with harmful chemicals? Who wants to eat corn grown from seeds that have been modified to a hair of its original genetic makeup?
I think the ploy to wear us down, corn industry, with the Kale PR has not worked. We are wise to you. We won’t let up on you corn industry and accept your GMO, toxic pesticide use just so we can stop eating Kale. Give us back our corn the way we want it and turn off the Kale PR machine! Kale sucks.
