I'm sometimes concerned that we rely on too few food crops. But I just haven't been able to develop a taste for millet. Oats are my favorite grain, and I also love wheat, rice, corn, rye, and barley- as well as some other foods that are not botanically "grains" but are eaten much like them, such as quinoa (and amaranth... I think I tried that once). Maybe I just haven't had millet prepared the way I like it.

2015: International Year of Soils

2013: International Year of Quinoa

2008: International Year of the Potato

2004: International Year of Rice
