Seeds now becoming available for 2015

Post  AtlantaMarie on 2/12/2015, 3:59 pm

Our local Wallyworld got in their Ferry Morse seeds.  Very prominent signage that they are non-GMO.  And finally some good differential packaging for organic vs non-organic vs heirloom.

My boys found seeds there for 20 cents per package. The brand is American seed. I was pretty stoked. bounce

I think most veggie seeds are GMO free.  I think Corn, soybeans and one other (wheat?  alfalfa?) are the only 3 crops sold that are Round-up GMO modified.  Hopefully someone will correct me.  The main reason GMO Round-up resistant commercial crops can be harmful is that they are sprayed with Round-up!  Bcause SFG is relatively weed free, we don't need Round-up!   Very Happy We just pluck out the weed.

GMO by itself is not necessarily bad. Say I love Tomato Variety A, but it is susceptible to Disease X.  I don't like Tomato Variety B but it is resistant to Disease X.   If they splice the Disease X resistant part of the chromosome from Tomato B and place it in my favorite tomato A, I wouldn't mind.   It could take years to naturally breed a Disease X-resistant Tomato A.
