Ken Revisits last year's A (the) Way to Garden
This week, we’re visited by Margaret Roach, former Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and creator of A Way to Garden – one of the most entertaining and enlightening blogs. (photo: Erica Berger) We’re getting ready to sow seeds for vegetables and fruits. We know growing organic is good, but Margaret shares news and reasons to buy organic seeds, as well. It makes sense. If seeds are harvested from rugged plants that have had to tolerate growing conditions without herbicide, fungicide, pesticides and tons of water, they will grow into plants that are better suited to our organic gardens’ challenging conditions.
Margaret also talks about The Safe Seed Pledge, a statement signed by some 70 companies swearing that they will not sell genetically engineered or modified seed.
Here are some of Margaret’s sources for more information on the best seeds.
