What’s all the Hoopoola regarding Monsanto?

Today on Facebook, I am sure a lot of you saw several posts regarding which food companies and products to avoid that are using GMO’s in their food production. So what are GMO’s and who or what is Monsanto?

Both are very valid questions. We all need to know and learn more about the effects of GMO’s on us and on our population’s health as a whole. And it is also very inportant to learn which companies use GMO’s in their food ingredients to make their products.

This is what was shared on Facebook within the past few weeks:

So far so good. I also added some new annual flowers such as dahlias both the 'dinner-plate' sized ones and the smaller regular height ~15" tall kind. The colors are so far already stunning pink peach! Yes, but of course photos are to come. And just like updating a website, cleaning the house, one's garden is never finished.
