As the new year gets underway, seed companies publish their catalogs for the growing season ahead. Wise gardeners and farmers will want to select and acquire their organic, open-pollinated seeds promptly this January. Changing economic conditions will make food growing a widely popular pathway this year as people look ahead.
Open-pollinated seeds produce food plants with seeds that can be successfully saved at harvest time, and then used to plan new crops for 2010 and beyond. Hybrid and genetically engineered seeds cannot be saved. To locate sources, just enter “organic, open-pollinated seeds” in your search engine, and the Internet will serve you up a wide array. Here’s a link to a page listing some seed companies.
