Are you concerned about GMO's?

Post by gramaki on Tue Nov 12, 2013 2:10 am

A couple of years ago I bought organic, non GMO heirloom seeds online and was very happy with the results. We had a good, productive garden. But for the last two years I bought most of my plants and seeds locally. We have a neighbor who has beautiful greenhouses, but we've had limited success with her plants. Some plants just seem to sit there and not do anything.

We are also concerned with eating non-GMO food, but aren't as disciplined about it as we should be. If we have the choice, it seems it would be better to avoid GMO's altogether.

Any thoughts?

I've bought organic heirloom seed online, planted them and saved the seeds from my garden's produce. I garden without chemical fertilizers so my saved seeds are just fine for me.

I do my best to avoid them where I can. Being gluten free due to wheat allergy and being Celiac I end up eating a LOT of corn products. No matter what I do it just seems unavoidable. Considering that the estimate is 90% of American corn is either GMO or contaminated by GMO. I am not avoiding very well in that area.

Corn is the most difficult to avoid GMO's due to it being wind pollinated. The pollen can travel up to 3 miles so isolation is tricky.
