i have been researching for non gmo seeds and found a few suppliers online for the other gardeners that would like to eat non engineered food…

now i'm a total dooms day prepper & stocking up on ammo or guns - dooms day hits guns won't save you. having food, water and first aid supplies will - guns just cause chaos. i believe with all the foods that are being engineered we will see more allergies and other issues evolve…anyhoo spring is coming!! :D

Oh, bummer...I thought you were one of "us". LOL

You are right though. Seeds are vital and getting heirloom seeds is so important. I have been using them for a few years now and I really like that I can save the seeds from my crops for future plantings. You cannot do that with altered seeds such as GMO or Hybrid.

I get some of my seeds from local farmers, but I also purchase from, and you can find sources in the Mother Earth News magazines. Seed exchanges are great places to go to as well.

I love my garden because it gives me the freedom from worry about what my veggies have been grown in, sprayed with or altered to be a "beautiful" veggie. Mine go from ground to plate in the same day usually or I can them. That is very gratifying even if you are not preparing for the end of the world as we know it.

I do have to agree with James though. You do need a way to protect your hard work and your life if the need should arise.

I live in a major city…I have for almost 10 yrs - Akron, Cleveland & now Columbus…for every responsible gun owner there are 10 Morons that shouldn't. Those legally bought guns end up in Criminals hands. An elderly neighbor beaten & shot, another kid in neighborhood was shot, thrown off bridge on to railroad tracks, I was at the laundromat & heard "pop pop pop"…a lady was shot at a stoplight threw her window. Just going to work & mistaken as someone "gang related". Sorry guns don't interest me. If they want something bad enough - guns won't protect you. Fort Hood mass shooting is proof enough.

Actually Fort Hood is a great proof of having an unarmed popultation at the mercy of a maniac who is intent on doing harm.

Do you know that the Standard Operating proceedure on military bases is only the MP corps have access to firearms. So the soldiers were largely unprotected until the MPs had an alert to the attack and could respond. (kinda like our cities)
(I have 1 son in the active military, one in the ready reserves, and one who has just mustered out of the ntl guard — and they have corroborated this SOP for the military bases.)

And the fact there are "10 morons" who shouldn't have the guns would be IMO MORE reason to have a means of protecting oneself.

I've told you I have given my firearms to my son to protect him and his wife and (when they have a baby) his family. However, I am now considering purchasing a 20 gague pump shotgun to protect me and my person.

I don't want to further this conversation, but WILL if more inaccuracies are used as a means of justifying the disarming of the citizens of our nation and attempt to denigrate the 2nd amendment.

understand your feelings that "guns will cause chaos" (especially in view of the hysteria caused over the recent shootings) however, without a firearm for self defense, (in a worst case scenario) you may not be able to keep what produce you have grown or the seeds you have gathered.

Of course I have no room to talk. I don't have a gun for protection either. I had given mine to my son to protect his home and family.
