    That's a way scary company. I rarely think of them without thinking of "The Omen III - The Final Conflict;" where the Anti-Christ owns a company very much like Monsanto, and is using it to take over the world's food production.

    I never thought of it that way, because Thorne wasn't destroying other crops, just taking over production and distribution, but I can see the correlations. Maybe we should mob the CEO and cut off his hair. :D

    Monsanto is the evil empire. They have systematically destroyed the small American family owned farm and have been instrumental in the urbanization of our nation. Monsanto defines what I believe to be Satan.

    You know multiple decades ago I worked for Monsanto at a plant near Brooksville Florida. I wonder if they would like me to break out my work notebook from when I worked for them, and humble them with the product of what they taught me.... ? just a thought. Are thoughts illegal yet?

    Depends on if they are Patented thoughts or not, and who holds the Patent..... Just ask all those folks that thought "PodCast" was in the Public Domain, and are now finding out that it is NOT... This includes APPLE, who lost in Court, to the tune of a couple Billion

    I have many choice words for Monsanto, but the only ones I'll 'publish' are that I will never knowingly support them. That's why I am ordering from small heirloom/nonGMO nurseries. Plus the customer service from them is much better than the big companies, because they actually believe in what they do, it's not just a job for them. Been fighting for months with Gurney's over an order last year, they keep coming up with different crap as to why we are not getting our full refund.

    I ordered a tree from Gurney's once, never got it, and never got a refund. I finally decided that the money wasn't worth the stress, and I will never order from them again. Henry Fields is another name for them, I think, so beware.

    Well they are FINALLY giving us proper refund, and all it took was becoming a PR problem and refusing delivery of the trees they tried to give us as a 'refund' instead. I think Kelly's Nursery is also a Gurney's company.

    Great. I'm sticking with small plants for now, anyway, and no trees for a while. I'm getting seeds from heirloom companies, and I don't anticipate any problems.

    Yeah only trees I'm ordering this year are sugar maples(be arriving end of this month), and maybe some black walnuts. Only seeds I order are heirlooms/nonGMO. Most of my orders I've already placed and received, but my order to Seed Savers I won't be doing until Wednesday. Great thing about heirlooms, even if they're a bit pricey to start with, if you know what you're doing, you won't ever have to buy that seed again :cool:

    It's the learning curve that kills you. ;)

    Tell me about it...took me 3 years to figure out that just because spinach in the grocery stores comes from Mexico does NOT mean it's a hot weather plant.

    Won't take killer bees with me, I'm allergic.

    The regular wasps/yellow jackets are trouble enough. Found out where they were 'nesting' in the ground last fall. Found out kinda the hard way. Only got stung once this time at least. Last time I found a nest the hard way I did get swarmed. At least I learned I'm not allergic. I also learned what NOT to do in that situation, because I pretty much screwed up everything the first time.

    Satan fell because of pride. He did not like being “second best.” He wanted to be God: “You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain’”

    monsanto means sacred mountain...
