Last week the idea of genetically modified seeds popped up due to a seed giveaway I was hosting. I mentioned that it would be a good topic for further discussion and recently Susy at Chiot’s Run put together a great post explaining everything that you need to know about GM seeds. It’s frustrating to realize that a large seed conglomerate can dominate so much of the agricultural market but there are options for the home gardener. Certain heirloom seed companies are competing against the big corporation Susy mentions and offer quality open pollinated heirloom seeds that you can save each year. I’ll let you read her post to find out more, and I highly recommend that you do!
