Experiment: Week Four

Things are going pretty well so far, but this weekend was a blur. Between my friend's baby shower (congrats again to Bob and Jahzz!) and the local craft / fish fair I really did NO research whatsoever! LOL!
Sorry y'all.
And today being my first day back in the workforce since before Xmas....well I'm pretty much whupped.
HOWEVER, I did promis the Burpee folks I'd do my retraction this week so here it is : (YAY!)
Neither Burpee NOR their sister company The Cook's Garden sell GMO seeds!
(Insert appropriate celebratory noises here!)
Here is the e-mail I received from them.
(They were the ONLY seed company so far to answer my missives......)

Dear Ms. Lavery,

Thank you for your inquiry. Please be advised that neither Burpee nor
its sister company The Cook's Garden sell GMO seed.

The individual who contacted you, Kristin Grilli, handles public
relations for Burpee and its sister companies. Unfortunately, there is
some inaccurate information on the Internet where claims are made that
Burpee and The Cook's Garden sell GMO seed. Our formal statement, which
Ms. Grilli may have relayed to you, can be found below.


We would greatly appreciate it if you would print a retraction as you
suggested. We appreciate your concern and value your business. Please
don't hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.



Kind Regards,

Marsha
Burpee Customer Service

So hooray! Big happy for those of us about to plant for the growing season!
Now....hopefully I'll be able to post more this week...but as I said...I AM WHUPPED!
So till next time,
Be well!
