Yes you read the headline right and no it is not one of my tabloid spoofs.
In order to protect the profits of lying, thieving, murdering shits like G M crop monopolists Monsanto you friendly local pan European neo Nazi dictators at European Union HQ in Brussels plan to regulate what you can grow in your garden.

– EU wants to regulate cultivation of fruit and vegetables in gardens (Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, April 23, 2013):
‘The European Commission wants to impose on farmers and gardeners in the future the use of standard seeds. Old and rare varieties have little chance of an approval, their cultivation will be punishable by law even if it takes place in private gardens.
The European Commission is working on a revision of the European seed market in the form of a regulation. Thus, a decision of the European Court is legalized in July 2012: Farmers are allowed to sell only officially authorized seed. So far, old and rare seed varieties were excluded that were grown in long standing economic and exchange traded, usually in small quantities. If it goes to the Commissions plans, small farmers or private persons may not even give away their homegrown seeds in the future.’

You have to understand that as far as corporate executives and their scummy chummies in politics are concerned, anything that we get free from nature is evil.
