The latest free thing that is arriving in the mail these days are UNIDENTIFIED seeds from an UNKNOWN source. Seeds that have not been ordered. They are arriving mostly from China and Uzbekistan. This is of great concern to the USDA and the State Departments of Agriculture. These seeds could be an invasive plant that does not currently exist in the US or they may contain seed-borne diseases that do not exist in the US. Some packages have an unknown seed treatment that could be dangerous to human health. Thank you!
