IF YOU ARE THE KIND OF GARDENER who buys vegetable seeds or seedlings (including tomato plants) from a local garden center, as I sometimes do, beware the varieties you select. Otherwise, you could very well be putting money into the hands of the wretched Monsanto Corporation. Forewarned is forearmed, right? Here is the list of Seminis/Monsanto home-garden vegetable varieties, and yes, it even includes zucchini: I’m going to print out this list, and keep a copy in my wallet. This way I won’t be caught off-guard the next time I decide to impulse-shop at a big-box garden center:

Beans: Aliconte, Brio, Bronco, Cadillac(sic!), Ebro, Etna, Eureka, Festina, Gina, Goldmine, Goldenchild(sic!), Labrador, Lynx, Magnum, Matador, Spartacus(sic!), Storm, Strike, Stringless Blue Lake 7, Tapia, Tema

Sweet Corn: Devotion(sic!), Fantasia, Merit(sic!), Obession, Passion, Temptation

Sweet Pepper: Baron, Bell Boy, Big Bertha PS, Biscayne, Blushing Beauty, Bounty, California Wonder 300, Camelot, Capistrano, Cherry Pick, Chocolate Beauty, Corno Verde, Cubanelle W, Dumpling brand of Pritavit, Early Sunsation, Flexum, Fooled You brand of Dulce, Giant Marconi, Gypsy, Jumper, Key West, King Arthur, North Star, Orange Blaze, Pimiento Elite, Red Knight, Satsuma, Socrates, Super Heavyweight, Sweet Spot

Tomato: Amsterdam, Beefmaster, Betterboy, Big Beef, Burpee’s Big Boy, Caramba, Celebrity, Cupid, Early Girl, Granny Smith, Health Kick, Husky Cherry Red, Jetsetter brand of Jack, Lemon Boy, Margharita, Margo, Marmande VF PS, Marmara, Patio, Phoenix, Poseidon 43, Roma VF, Royesta, Sun Sugar, Super Marzano, Sweet Baby Girl, Tiffany, Tye-Dye, Viva Italia, Yaqui

Watermelon: Apollo, Charleston Grey, Crimson Glory, Crimson Sweet, Eureka(sic!), Jade Star, Mickylee, Olympia

Note: Not all of the veggie varieties in the above list are Monsanto/Seminis exclusives. Consequently if you spot some of these varieties in the catalog of an heirloom seed-seller, just check with the seller to make sure the seeds were not purchased from Seminis/Monsanto. But if you find these seeds on a rack at a big-box garden center, you have every right to suspect they were purchased from the evil empire.

That’s quite a catalog, huh? No wonder Monsanto paid $1.4 billion in cash to acquire Seminis Seeds. You can see the catalog for yourself on Seminis’s own website.

Don’t be embarrassed if you’ve inadvertently planted some of these varieties in your garden. As you might recall, one summer

I innocently planted ‘Early Girl’ tomatoes. Believe me, I won’t be casting that vote again.

Niciodata in intreaga sa istorie statul si poporul roman, atat cat a mai ramas, nu au fost atat de aprope de extinctie ca acum. Practic, acum se joaca viitorul Romaniei intr-un context politic international extrem de nefavorabil. Lipsa de reactie inseamna acum, pur si simplu, extinctie! Practic, toate partidele, cu exceptia Partidului Noua Romanie (PNR) […]

Partidul Noua Romanie (PNR) considera ca Justitia din Romania este una dintre cele mai corupte institutii publice, fapt confirmat de sondajele de opinie, deciziile contradictorii si arbitrare ale magistratilor avand repercursiuni catastrofale asupra oamenilor si decredibilizand semnificativ statul roman, si asa in disoulutie. PNR sustine cu tarie o lege prin care magistratii sa fie trasi […]

Partidul Noua Romanie (PNR), sustinut de Miscarea Civica Frontul Alfa, sustine ca este o problema de siguranta nationala, in contextul crizei economice fara precedent care va lovi Romania, confiscarea averilor ilicite, investigarea surselor averii afisate, cu precadere pentru demnitari si functionarii publici, audit pentru verificarea datoriei publice a Romaniei, reintroducerea pedepsei cu moartea si majorarea […]

Partidul Noua Romanie (PNR), sustinut de Miscarea Civica Frontul Alfa, cere deratizarea de urgenta a institutiilor publice, populate in prezent cu amante, nepoti, lipitori de afise pe la partide, si alte astfel de specimene. PNR considera ca eliminarea rapida a acestora este o reala problema de siguranta nationala, cu atat mai mult cu cat se […]

Partidul Noua Romania (PNR), sustinut de catre Miscarea Civica Frontul Alfa, cere decapusarea bugetului public, drenat in prezent catre buzunarele unei clici bolsevico-securiste, cu efecte grave asupra dezvoltarii si bunei functionari a societatii romanesti. In contextul crizei economice fara precedent care se intrevede la orizont inca din aceasta iarna, decapusarea bugetului public reprezinta o chestiune […]
