Intro: Getting Started: Heirlooms

A quick explanation about heirloom seeds; Heirloom seeds are from plants grown the old (Read BEST) way, No genetic modifications, hybridization, or splicing. Heirloom seeds tend to be expensive up front but less expensive because you can save the seeds and they will continue producing, UNLIKE many other commercially available seeds which will produce sterile seeds in the plants and vegetables that grow. Heirloom = one time up front cost. Standard GMO seeds = Continuos cost every year.
I bought mine from Survivalistseeds A google search will take you to Big Johns website.

The last photo is of my Black Krim tomatoes! They will turn a dark purple color sometimes with green stripes and they are DELICIOUS!!! 
They're all I have up as of  may 8 because I saved seeds last year.

    Very cool ible!!! A few years ago I read that Monsanto tried to sell the Mexican Government Corn Seed that wouldn't reproduce. Mexico said NO THANKS! What a bunch of BS.

    There is a documentary called "The World According to Monsantos.
    You may never go to the grocery store again.
    I don't like the fact that they use E-coli to isolate the proteins that make the corn "roundup ready"
    A bit scary.
    Glad you enjoyed the instructable, I'll be adding as I go in the garden, just been a bit delayed lately.
