Local potato heros

Right here in Madison, Wisconsin!


  1. I hope they're not creating Franken-tubers! Europeans would rather blight than switch to GM foods. Of course they'd rather do a lot of things before being sensible. Nice local news find, Meade.

    IMHO, it's high time the US Patent and Trademark Office rescinded the statutory bar on potato plants: link.


  2. Blight than switch - good one, chickenlittle.

    Strange. I googled around and found a patented sweet potato - "Mahon Yam" and sweet potatoes are most certainly edible tubers. Yet your linked page clearly says no potatoes or edible tubers allowed. I don't get it.
