Are Your Veggie Seeds & Plants Monsanto?

As spring is just around the corner and bulbs hint of its arrival, it is time to start planting some veggie seeds inside.  For many seeds, I prefer heirloom.  There is nothing quite like an heirloom pink tomato ... perfectly sweet, low acid, full tomato flavor.  I also prefer Purple Peacock green beans, as they are some of the best I have eaten and are beautiful growing, too.  However, with some other seeds, I have not been quite as selective and I now realize that by that, I have been profiting a company that I would prefer not to ... Monsanto.  It is a bit late for me this year since I bought ahead at the end of last year's growing season, but I will be more cautious from here on out.
