But, David, if you work the bugs out, it cannot possibly work! Bugs are what make it work.You people lack vision. Sure the idea isn't perfect yet, but once the bugs are worked out it could be scaled to provide milk from goats and eggs from chickens - all feeding on those engineered super flowers. All of the conveniences of living on a self sufficient farm without ever leaving your apartment. And if you produced more than you need you could sell the excess on amazon and they would deliver it with drones to eager customers.
Seriously, you people need to wake up and smell the technology - it's the 21st century.
