More on avoiding GMO

Some links updated May 17, 2012 to reflect new pages on the Seminis site. I get so many emails asking if XYZ company is “safe” or if some list from some person is accurate, and lots of other questions, I actually don’t have time to answer them all, let alone do the research for dozens […]

Campbells is offering free seeds?

I’m not linking it directly, but a Google search for “campbells tomato seeds” should help you see what I mean. A basic internet search is coming up with very limited information, but what I am finding is Campbells grows their own tomatoes and Campbells soups are made with GE (genetically modified) tomatoes, so it would […]
