GMO Garden Pests

In the last few days I've gotten several emails concerning the labelling of GMO foods. Here in VT a few years ago, Monsanto won a lawsuit against an organic farmer after their GMO seeds had blown into his field, where their seeds grew and his organic field was ruined. By the time it was discovered what had happened and the farmer moved to do something, Monsanto sued him for patent infringement and won. And he had to start over. This has happened multiple times with Monsanto.

If you're planting a garden this year, be aware of what are Monsanto's own:
