Hi Linda,

I did work for Meyer Seeds in Baltimore.a company which was ewstablished in
1910.  I have severed that connection, however.

I'll let the others who have had dealings with Shumway or Totally Tomatoes
voice their opinions. 

Monsanto bears the weight of the following quote.  "Hope Shand, Research
Director of RAFI.

 >>  "We weren't surprised to learn that Monsanto is
behind the bill, because the company is already waging a ferocious
campaign against seed-saving farmers and it's actively developing the
controversial suicide seeds - or Terminator technology," said Shand.
Terminator is a technique for genetically altering a plant so that the
seeds it produces are sterile.  Plants cross pollinated by those possessing
the terminator gene may also be affected.<<

Good gardening,
Chuck Wyatt
