Pay attention to this bill – HR 875 – This bill is being interpreted by some as criminalizing organic farming and the backyard gardener, preparing wild game, and a violation of the 10th amendment

http://www.washingtonwatch.com/bills/show/111_HR_875.htmlIf you don’t have any garden seeds yet, buy them now – make sure they are non-hybrid seeds
so you will be able to save the seeds and continue to reproduce from one crop to another.
You might consider making sure you have some food storage in order.
