Utah Ag Dept wants to give you a hug


It all sounds so friendly and welcoming... Group Hug

Welcome to Utah's Garden Challenge
(http://www.utahgardenchallenge.com/ and http://ag.utah.gov/ )

"How much food do we produce in Utah? Registering 10,000 gardens is an opportunity to find that answer as well as display our agricultural heritage. This challenge shows our state residents connection to the land. We impart self-sufficiency and take pride in our community. Whether you grow a tomato in a pot, a row in a community garden, have backyard gardens, a CSA or working fruit and vegetable farm, we want to hear from you because you are an important resource as a food producer."


"We need to know how much food is being produced in Utah.  The Census of Agriculture is done every 5 years.  Every agricultural operation in Utah, regardless of size, is vital to this question.  If you produce $1000 of agricultural products, you can influence economic development and decision making by filling out a NASS survey."

Not everyone is buying this bull$#1t ... Evil Looking

Get registered and the gov't can regulate you under the commerse clause like the case they won in the SCOTUS against the wheat farmer. Destroyed his crops.

A few years ago, when the country was awash in the stench of hopenosis, one of our resident libs castigated us as being paranoid -- govt wasn't going to bother home gardeners, they said. Since then, you've seen the stories. There's plenty of "bothering" going on ... the libs have no explanation.

I only have to wonder when hey are going to want our hunting, trapping and fishing skills, .... some things will have to remain secret.

Hunting & trapping? See sustainable development/Agenda 21. Fishing? See Law of the Seas Treaty.
Right now, Colorado farms are dying of thirst due to stupid rules, while plenty of water is just below the surface.
