GMO Seeds, Just the Facts, a Final Discussion To finish up this GMO topic, I’m recapping last night’s show. I stated quite clearly that you can not buy GM seeds for your garden. When you order seeds from anywhere in the US, you will NOT be getting GM seeds. But, don’t take my word for it. Here’s Jeff Gillman from Washington Sate University Extension saying exactly the same thing… What it all boils down to is this, if you’re concerned about the GMO issue, you have to change your buying habits in the store. You have to find alternatives for those items that you know with 90% certainty will contain a GM derivative. You can NOT count on the gov’t or any corporation to guarantee the safety of the foods you buy in the grocery store. When all is said and done, the responsibility is yours, and yours alone.

    Good job my new friend…I will be taking your advise and do something about it (GMO) that is….I want to learn all i can to grown indoors and after awhile out side too :)

    your a very talented/gifted person!! Thank you for sharing everything..its people like yourself that keeps the faith

  2. If you are ordering seeds from a typical online company, you aren’t gonna receive any GM seeds. That goes for the soybeans too. There are a few varieties that the seed companies sell for home gardeners, and they are not GM. Without a lot of extra effort on your part, nobody is going to sell you GM seeds.

    Oh yeah. I’ve ordered soybeans that are supposed to be nonGMO. Did you say they’re probably not? I may have misunderstood. I want to grow them so I can try to make soy milk and tofu. I don’t know crap about raising cows and stuff. Plus, those types of animals are not allowed in the zone my house is located.

    I’m new to gardening & have turned to YT vids to learn the skill, but I don’t know much about the GMO thing. I’m willing to learn from you if you have time. I’ve been buying nonGMO seeds online cuz I thought I had to if I wanted to grow healthy food. Can you please tell me the list of which regular seeds I have to worry about? Corn, soy beans, sugar beets, and the others. I can figure out which foods not to buy from the list. I just don’t want to leave out anything. THANKS A BUNCH!

  5. I love this!!!. I love your videos, I am new gardener and I have learned a lot from you. Thank you so much. Keep up the good work.

  6. Thanks Aaron. If I can help, just holler.

  7. Love your videos. I’m a beginner hydroponics and raised bed gardener and regular viewer.
    Keep up the great work! From Aaron in New Zealand.

  8. Thank you. I’ll do my best.

  9. No worries. As they say, it’s all gonna come out in the wash ! Thanks.

  10. Yea, those don’t sound too good. These are Big Beef hybrids that I got from Johnny’s Seeds or Morgan County Seeds. Not sure which cuz I’ve ordered from both. But either one will have what you’re looking for.

  11. Hello, I have not been very successful with my tomatoes in my Dutch bucket system that I made after seeing your dutch bucket system. It’s gotta be the seeds. I bought them from someone on ebay. I have tried many varieties, lastly beefcake, but I am not getting results like you, very few tomatoes (and ugly shaped) lol. Can you tell me these tomatoes I see on this video, where you bought the seeds and what name they are? I am getting dissappointed, especially working hard on it. thank you!!!

  12. forget those haters, i can’t believe people would get on your case! you are seriously great! thanks for the vids.

  13. Great work. Keep it up. God Bless you.

  14. Thank you. Those tomatoes were awesome. They kept going, and going, and going. :)

  15. Thanks. I appreciate that.

  16. Thanks. It really is about changing buying habits. As long as everyone buys the GM products, I don’t see anything changing. It’s not gonna be easy, but it can be done if an individual was truly concerned.

  17. I think you’re doing a great job!! And those tomatos look gorgeous! Thank you for your videos!!

  18. Well said. Thank you.

  19. I could not agree more with you. GM can only be beat in the store. Nice video man.

  20. Hehe… it’s amazing what a little editing can do ! Thanks.

    Wow Bobby at 7:44 in this video you proved you are a master of illusions! What happened to the paper in your hands? I keep sending this video link to my friends who freak out over the GMO subject. Very well articulated. Here is one fact I bet you did not know. Farmers have to plant a percentage (e.g. 10%) of refuge corn so the bugs have something to eat. Sometimes the refuge corn out yields the GMO corn. Go figure.

  22. Thanks. If you are calling yourself 100% organic, I wouldn’t use it. Since 90+% of the cotton grown in the U.S. is GMO, it makes sense that most of the meal would have some residue. Epsoma may have a source that is a typical OP cotton, I dunno. It’s a tricky subject, and one of the reasons that I don’t claim to be 100% organic. I use what I feel gives me the best chance to put something on the table.

  23. No worries in regard to the negativity. It comes with the territory so to speak. As long as the message gets thru to those that can benefit from it, then all is good. Thank you. :)

  24. Thank you so much for all of your videos, advice & knowledge. Your discussion of GMO seeds was informative, intelligent & well researched. The fact that some people find fault & criticize just shows that there will always be a few instigators in a crowd. Please, don’t let the negativity/hatefulness of some get to you…some people just can’t be pleased. The fact that you are committed enough to share your knowledge is a blessing to many…myself included! Thanks again:)

  25. Very informational. Thanks a bunch!! By the way, cottonseed meal is a good nitrogen source that’s afforddable. Should it be used by the organic gardener considering that it’s likely GMO?

    EPSOMA is a brand that I’ve found in certain garden centers and it has the word “organic” on their bags of cottonseed meal. Is it OK to use?
