Ed’s Podcasts: Tool Care (Encore)

February 1, 2012 at 3:44 PM 5 comments

Howdy, everyone!  Today’s podcast was actually run back in November, but in the past week we’ve received two different requests to run it again, so here it is!

Have you checked on your garden tools recently?  They wear down and require repair or replacement just like any other tool in your home.  But when’s the best time to give them the repair they need?  Right now!  The podcast below details why it’s best to check and repair your garden tools this time of year.

    A few years ago, I bought an Ed Hume corn, Arrowhead”. It was the best ever. Why isn’t it available any more? I planted “Trinity” last year. It’s good but…….. doesn’t beat “Arrowhead”.

      Thanks for the question, Michelle! Arrowhead corn is a variety grown by a company that is involved in GMO (genetically modified seeds), either growing GMO seeds or in GMO research. At Ed Hume Seeds, we make a point not to buy seeds from those firms. Have you tried our variety “Kandy Korn?” It is both my wife and I’s favorite variety.

        Thanks, looked up “Kandy Korn” and it has a 90 day growing season. I need 50-60 days in my area. Guess I’ll keep looking.

    I have been buying your seeds for some time now. A friend asked if your seeds are genetically alterd and I did not know. Can you tell me if they are?

      Hi Pat! Thanks for the question. For anyone else who may come across this comment, GMO stands for “Genetically Modified Seeds.” Ed Hume Seeds does not buy seeds from any company that sells or does research in GMO Seeds. We are openly against GMO.
