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 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.

Se pare ca, dupa migratia in masa a baronilor si baronasilor PSD catre PNL, partidul din urma a prins din zbor si cateva dintre obiceiurile primului. Asa se face ca, primarul PNL dintr-o comuna obscura din judetul Arges, Albestii de Muscel, Mihai Catalin Manta, s-a gandit sa-si asigure un nou mandat printr-o metoda sigura, validata […]

“Alegerile” europarlamentare 2019, in fapt un jalnic exercitiu pseudoelectoral, reflecta cat se poate de clar faptul ca Romania este un stat esuat fara posibilitatea practica de a-si mai reveni. Asistam, de fapt, la o batalie intre diversele factiuni din serviciile secrete romanesti, in fapt doar niste reminiscente bolsevico-securistoide sau neomarxiste extrem de toxice, simple anexe […]

Miza “alegerilor” europarlamentare 2019 este, din perspectiva papusarilor locali si a sefilor lor alogeni, una cat se poate de simpla: cati imbecili vor mai fi vrajiti de necesitatea de a-si exercita “dreptul” de vot in numele democratiei, in perspectiva urmatoarelor “alegeri”, prezidentiale, parlamentale si locale. Prostilor, evident, nu le spune nimeni cui foloseste acesta iesire […]

Incredibil ce se intampla in Romania! Un sat intreg retrocedat unei familii, caz fara precedent in Romania! Satul Nadas din judetul Arad ramane retrocedat, dupa ce Tribunalul Olt a admis recursul formulat de familia Colteu, considerand ca cererea de reviziuire depusa de autoritatile locale este tardiva. In 2006, familia Colteu a mostenit un sat in […]

Tocmai am citit o nota a Jurnalistului de serviciu, suparat ca la o dezbatere despre Mediu la ProRomania n-a putut bea nici macar un pahar cu apa…. Pai, normal, la cat de multi sunt in firul de asteptare pentru devalizarea tarii asteia, nu-si pot permite sa aiba cheltuieli nedeductibile nici macar cu apa chioara, dar […]
