Thanks so much for posting this. I'm finally getting around to planting a garden... which is funny given the name of my site.

I read this a few days ago prior to going to the garden shop yesterday. Thanks goodness I did, I made sure I bought heirloom seeds, this post scared the crap out of me. Worked all day today to till the soil with some top soil, compost and peat moss. Cheers.

Best regards,
