You got a really sweet deal for 150.00. Please share a link to your supplier as others could use it too. Even if you are not in a position to grow
your own 'this' year, people could start purchasing a package here and there to eventually have a small store for the near future when economics make
life next to impossible to purchase from the stores.
Which makes me alos state that as I said before corn has become the poster child for GMOS/Monsanto but cross pollination can happen to just about all
varieties and so even if you grow their seed it is no guarantee that the seed you return to them has not been cross contaminated... a real problem for
sure and much more research should be going into this rather than some of the other crazy things that get the research grants today.
Another suggestion would be to save back several of the seeds from each packet, I always do even if it is just 2 or 3 seeds, I do this because of
paranoia? I dont know it is a security measure in case something happens to that seed and I can no longer attain any more.
For years I have had the sense that this could be the final year and always make prep's for next years food by buying over what I plan to plant this
year and saving back from what I planted.
One more thing Id like to say is that you must feel so proud of yourself, the entire awakened collective consciousness is! I know that there is one
more person who in times of trouble will have real viable seed and that is worth its weight in platinum.
You know gardens dont have to be in rows, they dont have to be grouped together in the same area. If you have even an 1/16th of an acre you can grow
thousands of plants. It can be as creative and artistic as you can imagine. A nice tilled garden plot is wonderful, but spreading it out in
complimentary groupings can reap high yield as well as look absolutely fantastic.
What you say has really been the basis of my discovery, I am shocked because I really thought people made these choices out of financial necessity but
when I slashed the price just to have less to haul home, I was really amazed. I am this business to sell plants trees and shrubs, I do the veggie
thing as a service to others...wow.
Also there have been times when I felt like leaving ATS, but you know we really are if only in practice the salt of the earth and a huge base for
knowledge. People here are really smart and make conscious choices whenever possible.
I know I know. Its something I really thought people knew and just did not have the choices, but when those choices are put right before their nose,
like some kind of zombie pre-apocalyptic hive mentality swarmed to the very thing that was bad bad bad fro them and more costly in every way.
Are the people who chose the gmo yesterday the very same that will not make it? The percentage was very low of those who did begrudgingly buy mine. I
mean, who knows? Perhaps the seed itsself has some chemical which people are attracted to? The plant throws off something which is like brains to
I considered a few titles but felt like this would serve what I discovered yesterday. You know like that funny saying we
coined here on ATS long ago about "Nothing to see here folks, just move along"? But read what i wrote to notsofast, maybe there is something which
is being emitted by the plants themselves which cause a feeding frenzy? Bizarre out there thoughts I know, but just saying...
: I have a friend who is in college herself to become a scientist in botany, even she finds herself as the minority in these same
matters, these students know better and still are so heavily preconditioned to think that science is good, that if it is for the betterment of man, to
feed the starving masses worldwide then it is best to go along.
I think there are things out there like that but I am a conspiracy advocate so anything which is similar in fashion to that I would
not trust. High frequencies could harm my pets, family even the local bird and animal populations. It would be great though to have a real chance to
move them away by sound waves, but think about it, what if it ran off the bees, butterflies and other insects like lady bugs and things we want here?
I get where you are coming from and think it is admirable but it would need much more work to make it happen in the right way.
