We all make mistakes, but The Register-Guard wins typo of the week with this one in the article “Final Frontier” from the Feb. 21 issue:
“’Microgreens will be the first cash flow boost,’ Jason Waligoske said. ‘That will be followed by mescaline, baby spinach, other greens.”
In the print version, it appears after the jump under “Unusual varieties planned.”
Indeed I would find it “unusual,” and in fact a little trippy, if I were to find mescaline in my salad rather than mesclun mix.
The story continues, “‘My wife is from Germany,’ Jason Waligoske said. ‘Some of that outlook is her desire for produce that is over there that is hardly ever seen here.’”
Recreational pot has been legalized in Oregon, so why deny fans of fresh hallucinogens and hard-to-find produce a little peyote-type snack to munch with their microgreens?
