Heirloom vegetable seeds

photos: m&j

An interesting debate over whether to heirloom or go hybrid. But still difficult to convince us die-hard heirloomers to budge an inch. Also pretty amazing to learn how they get hybrid, engineered grocery store tomatoes to turn red and how old they are by the time we encounter them on shelf. Yuck! http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/24/garden/24seeds.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1
