A Seed-Based Romance

LOVE this wedding storyin today’s New York Times!  The bride, Dr. Amy Goldman, is chairwoman of the Seed Savers Exchange and the groom, Dr. Cary Fowler is head of theGlobal Crop Diversity Trust, which helps run the famous Svalbard Global Seed Vauilt in arctic Norway.  The couple is seen here at the vault.

My favorite part of the story:

As far as their study of seeds goes, the couple do have some differences:  Dr. Goldman likes “fruity vegetables,” while Dr.  Fowler prefers staples, like rice and wheat.
