    This caught my eye. Maybe you've heard it before.

    "Let a man profess to have discovered some new Patent Powder Pimperlimplimp, a single pinch of which being thrown into each corner of a field will kill every bug throughout its whole extent, and people will listen to him with attention and respect. But tell them of any simple common-sense plan, based upon correct scientific principles, to check and keep within reasonable bounds the insect foes of the farmer, and they will laugh you to scorn."

    I had no idea Monsanto had been around that long.

    Would I be sinning if I said "a single pinch of which being thrown into each corner of a field" sounds like bio-dynamic practices to me.

    Just kidding, they make no claim of killing anything, just putting everything back in balance.
