    I echo the comments about results. Who takes a quiz without wanting to know the measures.

    got the pests one wrong — I spend way too much time on invasive species to consider ‘pests’ a natural part of the system. Parasites/predators, yes … but to me the word ‘pest’ implies something seriously out of balance. A few of the others I could argue as well. With the right system, small amounts of meat/bones compost pretty well. Orange peels may not smell or attract predators, but they do take FOREVER to break down.

    Only missed two. One because I didn’t read the question carefully and one I didn’t know. Pretty pleased.

    Depends on where you are composting. In Seattle through our municipal composting system you CAN compost meat and bones.

    It depends upon the pest. Many of the worst ones are introduced—here in WI we are dealing with the Japanese beetle, (Asian) emerald ash borer, (Asian) spotted-wing Drosophila, multi-colored Asian lady beetle, and we are on the lookout for a few more. All of these are tremendously disruptive—sure, eventually the ecosystem will reach a new balance, but it may take decades or more.

    As a chef I try and keep up with food issues. The Fair Trade symbol is new to me and the information on the PLUs code system is something that I will use regularly from now on.
    Thanks for keeping us informed !

    I took the test and found out that I’m very ignorant about the process that goes into producing food in general. I eat healthy by intuition but not by knowing all the details. It is helpful for a conversation with others but knowing this info does not make anyone a more environmentally friendly consumer.

    What the heck was my SCORE???? I know I missed 3 questions and that’s 80%, so a ‘B’ in an institutional school… but how does that compare on a bell curve? What are the norms? Feel kind of cheated.

    Planting seeds, pulling weeds, using non rain water are not naturally occurring events? A case could be made to disagree, humans are part of a natural ecosystem. I guess you could say we don’t always do everything right, however.

    Hello! We took the quiz and would love to see some sort of comparison tool at the end to tell us “how food literate” we are! Thanks!

    I am referring to the question on fish.

    I have always found seeds quite amazing.
    I wonder what came first the seed or the plant?
  • commented 2013-10-22 22:19:44 -0400
    This question should be re-worded. The question is way to open and could have many answers.
