Letters To The Editor

I am a beginning veggie gardener. Can you please explain to me what you mean by “heirloom seeds / vegetables?

Thank you,



That’s a great question! In the modern context, an heirloom seed is a non-GMO, non-hybrid seed that has been passed down from one generation to another, by saving the seeds from the plant each time it grows. says these seeds taste better and are more nutritious, because they’ve never been in a laboratory. They’re also cheaper.

“The savings keep on increasing over time. If you save your own seeds each growing season, the price for seed eventually drops to zero,” the website states.

You can’t buy these seeds just anywhere, though.
