Default Everybody in the US please read this...

The US government is trying to ban gardening, and seed saving. This is a breach of your rights. Do not let this happen.

Senate Bill S 510 Food Safety Modernization Act vote imminent: Would outlaw gardening and saving seeds

A banana plant in the autumn gale -
I listen to the dripping of rain
Into a basin at night.

The only seed saving that is not allowed by law (and the only one that is ever likely to exist in the U.S.) is saving patented seeds. This is because when a company holds a patent on an improved seed (like Monsanto with several varieties of corn) if farmers were allowed to save seed then Monsanto would not recoup the money they spend in research and development nor would they profit. A farmer could buy a small amount of seeds one year and harvest those seeds for the next crop. We are a country "of the people" and even if a loophole in a law outlawed gardening U.S. citizens would get the law changed back.
