I was guessing you would have a garden buckshot.. Alot of Tennesseans seem to have one..

I got a question..

Have ya'll ever heard that hybrid seeds make a unhealthy vegetable... Reason im asking is my mother-in-law said she watched a show on one of the history type channels that was talking about ill effects of hybrid seeds due to the chemicals and such they use on them to make them disease resistant.. I very rarely use a hybrid but did order a few this year. Its making me wonder now.. Supposedly folks got sick and a few died from it..
And the U.S. is the only place that makes it legal for hybrids to be sold.. Ive never heard this before and could find absolutley nothing about it in google..

I plant a small garden every year. beans, tomato, zucinni, peppers, basics. Hybrids I believe are simply genetically enhanced and basically healthy to consume. I doubt they taste as well as the old stand-bys as many are enhanced to grow faster taller and bare more fruit which may have over time reduced some taste quality??

I have never heard anything about the hybrids being bad for you. What's not hybrid anymore, there are more kinds of tomato plants when I go to buy them it's hard to decide which ones.

i said to the wife when we move i want to start a garden and maybe a greenhouse.I want to try caning too,i remember my mom doing it,that and making jams

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
