“But really it is the seed that determines the system, not the other way around”

“We are told that everything begins with seed. Everything ends with it, too. As a chef I can tell you that your meal will be incalculably more delicious if I’m cooking with good ingredients. But until that afternoon I’d rarely considered how seed influences — determines, really — not only the beginning and the end of the food chain,
but also every link in between.”

– Dan Barber, The New York Times –
