New developments

There have been a couple of new developments here I thought I'd point out:

- I've added the Fruit section of Fruits & Votes to the sidebar, since it's the only other fruit blog-like thing I know of out there.

- I've added the Farrago Recent Comments Hack from BloggerHacks. So now, in addition to recent posts, you'll be able to see the most recent comments on current posts down in the sidebar. I'm not entirely psyched about the implementation and may tinker some with it, but I hope folks like it. I hope it'll encourage people to post comments...more dialog would be welcome. (It had some problems earlier, but I think it's fixed...let me know if it does something weird.)

I've kind of been regretting the fact that the emphasis here has so far been so strongly on the "fruit" and not on the "fruit breeding". The problem has been how to do that without getting bogged down too heavily in the scientific, since as far as I can tell most of my readers are non-scientists.

I've been thinking of maybe trying to to do a series of articles, maybe "Fruit Breeding Fridays". I'd start out with some basic genetics (with examples in fruit), and then maybe look at specific traits and crops. Would there be any interest in this? Would it make you never read this blog? I'd still keep the emphasis on the fruit and not on DNA, because that's more or less where my own interests lie as well. And the rest of the posts would continue as they have been.

Anyway, a thought I've been kicking around.

Update: I fixed the messed up Fruits & Votes links above. You'd think at some point I'd learn to check links when I post them. (But you'd be wrong.)

Oh, sure, maybe I would actually learn something about DNA, unlike in my Cal Poly San Luis Obispo genetics class, where, I swear to you, I learned NOTHING (thanks, professor Stansfield) and still got a C.

Oddly enough, I passed plant breeding, for which the prereq was a C in genetics, with a B, and I seemed to do much better. Maybe it was the practical, hands-on aspect. Maybe it was because my presentation to the class was on chrystanthemum breeding, and my teacher was totally unfamiliar with flowers and had only dealt with food and fiber crops...anyway, yes, post on, EFL!

Very kind of you to add the link. Thanks!

And why are there not more fruit blogs, anyway? Mine barely qualifies, but I am fairly committed to building up the repretoire on fruit posts in the coming month, as it's looking like it will be a relatively slow month on the "votes" front.

I have a few other links on my right sidebar to blogs that have some fruit-related content, but some are a bit of a streth (i.e., even more than Fruits and Votes).
