When we sold our produce at market, I received a lot of questions about whether we sold heirloom or hybrid tomatoes.

But you can’t talk about heirlooms without understanding what it means to be open-pollinated, and how that is different from hybrid and genetically modified organisms.
About the Author
Together with my husband and kids, I work on our small farm in Georgia. We grow as much as we can every year. Every year is different, because we never know what obstacles life will throw at us. I like to write about what inspires me in the garden, and there are so many cool things to find in there.
