Seeds?

please forgive a silly question from a first time gardener...

In the process of starting our first vegetable garden...want to use organic materials/methods... Do I need to purchase "organic" seeds, or will seeds from any garden center do? What are the differences, if any, between organic seeds and non-organic?

JJ, that's not a silly question at all. :) If you want a totally organic garden you will need organic seeds. The difference between organic seeds or plants is that they are certified to have been grown without the use of synthetic herbicides or pesticides for at least 3 years.
