Growing Your Own Food:
Check out these sites for safe seeds, recommended by Vern Morin (wwwMorinLabs.com):
Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds www.rareseeds.com (my favorite seed catalog with coolest seed from around the globe and a company with a mission, also true country folk like my family).
Heirloom Acres Seeds www.heirloomacresseeds.com (A family company after my own heart dedicated to GOD and life and best prices).
Use Welter Seed and Honey www.welterseed.com for your catch/cover crop seed and clover seed to plant in between your rows and crops (this keeps weeds down, adds nitrogen naturally and encourages pollination by attracting bees and beneficial insects, our friends) another great company, although they do have an organic line they also have a hybrid line for Big Ag and the farmers who just do not care about anything but making money!
Earlier posting: Major news item about Monsanto's attempt to pollute and control the world's food supply: "Fedco Seeds: The David to Monsanto's Goliath" . Please first visit the sites above. An organic gardener friend just told me that Fedco is a major double-agent in selling hybrids plus a smaller "heirloom seeds" line.
"...Cash-strapped consumers, scared by the specter of an empty fridge, are investing in the ultimate low-tech, high-yield start-up: the kitchen garden. The National Gardening Association estimates that some 43 million Americans are gearing up to grow at least some of their own food this spring...
"...Monsanto’s ongoing campaign to control our food chain has been well documented in a series of books, documentaries, and articles in recent years, but the vast majority of American consumers remain blissfully unaware of all the behind-the-scenes machinations Monsanto has employed in its quest to persecute–and, presumably, eliminate–the small, independent farmers who decline to buy Monsanto’s patented, genetically modified seeds, preferring instead to grow seed varieties that have been painstakingly bred for superior flavor and texture and, in many cases, passed down through generations..."
This is an in-depth resource for micronutrient information about foods. Just click on the name of a food to open a first page of basic nutrition information, then at the bottom of that page click on the line for "In-Depth Nutritional Profile" and read a long chart about contents such as glutamate, minerals, fatty acids and much more. This is a documentation site for the work of Dr. J., about food toxicity [click here] caused by glutamate and grains.
