Sign of the Times

Lately, we have heard commercials for non-hybrid seeds on the radio. It's somewhat of an alarmist advertisement, and the website has more than a survivalist feel to it. I won't give the address here, because I do not believe it's a product worthy of your money.

Okay, so it's a seed company, fair enough. Well actually, you can't just go and buy one type of seed. You have to pay $118.95 and get one big set of seeds. I'm not the family seed purchaser, but I do believe you could get all these seeds for much less than $118.95.

If you're that concerned about food security, you ought to do your research now, because there are lots of lessons to be learned in gardening...ones that you probably can't all learn in one year. And ones that you can't learn about in books. I'm sure we (in our 2.5 years of gardening) haven't learned all of them yet. You can't expect to get bountiful harvests in your first year of gardening if you just put seeds in the ground. There is a lot to learn.

    I agree. All these years of gardening I didn't really think of an advantage of having non-hybrid seeds. I have always just wanted to keep the tomato wilt virus out of my tomato plants. I have heard the commercials & I had no idea they were charging that much. I am SURE you can find them for less, right Harmony?
