    BREAKING: European Commission to criminalize nearly all seeds and plants not registered with government

    Although the NaturalNews article states that any gardener would soon become criminal, the draft document (*.pdf) states that it only applies to professionals. However, it only vaguely defines professionals. Knowing Europe, I would not be surprised if this included the small, local farmer/individual who just wanted to sell a few items at the local market.

    The draft also states that imports must meet the EU requirements as prescribed in the draft. Which means that we will need to comply with their regulations if we are to trade with them.

    I'm sure the end result of this will be a severe shrinkage in the supply of heirloom seeds and the expedient vertical growth of corporation-based seed/farming companies. In short: bad for the little guy, good for the big guy.

    Buy your seeds.

    Every time I go thru the hardware store I grab a few packs of various heirloom seeds and add to my stash. Just as a habit and over time it has grown pretty well to where I feel I can raise a nice couple of crop's initially. Then it is just about harvesting seed and starting over once again....
