Growing heirloom plants allows me to harvest safe, not genetically modified vegetables and, their seeds will produce after their own kind. Hybrid seeds don't have the capability of reproducing consistent seeds.It's hard to believe this is one plant!
Honey bees provide 1/3 of all food we eat. That's 1 out of every 3 bites of food you eat. Honey bees are disappearing at an alarming rate. This phenomenum is known as Colony Collapse Disorder. It is thought that the main culprit of Colony Collapse (CCD) is genetically modified seeds with a systemic poison within the seed itsself, producing a plant with poisons within to kill insects. Last time I checked, bees are also insects! So, check the labels on seeds and plants that you purchase. We can make a difference by growing safe flowers, fruit trees, and vegetables that are not GMO. By growing organic and heirloom plants and staying away from toxic pesticides we are helping the honey bee make a comeback and protecting our food supplies. Some of you might even become backyard beekeepers . . . like us . . . Over at Julie's!!!
