So, I’ve talked about organic fertilizer and why we should go organic now it’s time to talk seeds. I know that seeds seem pretty insubstantial in the grand scheme of things, but if your garden is only as good as its seeds. I think the main reason I would suggest organic seeds is this, regular seeds are retrieved from plants that had chemicals and pesticides used on them. BUT, organic seeds have a better chance of being done in an organic environment too.
I get all my seeds through Burpee. I’ve dealt with them for a few years now and everything they sell is good quality and their customer service is good as well. They have a whole section on their site dedicated to organics and you find it right here. They have just about anything you could look for as far as seeds are concerned, but they also sell starter plants too.
Anyway, back to the reasons for organic seeds. When plants are grown with chemicals and pesticides, the seeds will carry these chemicals as well. While regular seeds will probably still do well in a garden (even an organic one), these chemicals will still transfer to the plants grown from the seeds. So, for a truly organic garden, one needs to start with organic seeds.
Starting with organic seeds means that your garden will truly be an organic garden. No chemical, no pesticides that have leeched into the seeds because they were grown that way. In other words, you will know what went into your seeds and you will know what is coming out of your seeds.
The best organic gardens start with the best organic materials. This would be seeds, soil, fertilizer, and pest killers (yes there are organics for that too, we’ll get into that next time). All organic materials will provide an all organic garden, which in turn will provide all organic fruits and veggies for you and your family.
Have a great day!
