They're focused on many perennial crops, including rye.
I listened to the podcast about this market. It sure is a shame that the government always wants to shut good things down simply because they weren't asked permission. Something has got to give. I really like the work-around they were able to come up with.

We set up a terrarium in a fish tank for sprouting apple, pear, and other fruit tree seeds.  They're thriving.

I've raised both meat and angora rabbits and I think the information I found about the mites issue was that you can use a flea powder that is deemed Kitten-Safe on your rabbits, but not just prior to butchering.  Cannot remember the exact citation, but I have "Rabbit Production" as a reference, so it might be in there. 

I know it's not a "natural" remedy, but it depends on how bad your infestation is.

Just picked up some acorn under two Shumard Oak specimens identified by the city forester!  Can't wait to see if they will grow on my lot.  The parent trees are just lovely!  I already have a Shingle Oak and a Northern Red Oak going but, IMHO, you can't have too many oak trees!

and leaving the bitter tasting sapponins in tact may keep some critters from sampling your seed while it's in storage

I have a question - how do those big ag companies grow zillions of huge potatoes?  I'm sure they're not coddling them with extra compost, manures, fluffy organic matter, etc.  And why do we hear reports of people being able to grow them successfully on the worst compacted messes by just placing them on top cardboard with covering them with straw?  Potatoes have me baffled too.  I've had great ones some years, and miserable returns other years.  This year was a poor year as they got too hot too soon after being planted (which was late - my bad) and the tops fried off leaving me with only very small, round tatties.  I'm thinking of just holding them all over the winter and trying again.
