I do get heirloom seeds, but will they stay "heirloom" if I have more than one variety of a plant?

Not sure; I do know that if the cucumbers are too close to the watermelons, the melons will taste bad. I would guess it could be an issue.

They will cross-pollinate. Tomatoes will also pollinate potatoes and peppers (and any other nightshade). We usually don't sweat it though. The heirloom tomatoes we get are all beefsteak, usually Brandywine and Mortgage Lifter, maybe some Santa Clara Canner and Ace too.

Anything can cross-pollinate and will produce a plant that is different than the fruit that you get the seed from. But not always.

To ensure a "pure" strain, separate your plants by a good distance of 100 feet or more. Even then you are not assured.

I'm a Woody Guthrie fan, so naturally I would listen to his music. I was watching a video that went along to "Vigilante Man". The video was real footage from certain riots during the depression era. Occasionally, the police or vigilantes would fire some guns, but they made an enormous amount of smoke, like with a black powder gun. I kind of though that by the 1930's everybody had switched to smokeless powder. What's up with that?

I can't answer your firearms question but I want to throw out there I am a Woody Guthrie fan, too. Also Pete Seeger and any sort of "folk music". Many years ago I saw Pete Seeger in concert. What an opportunity. Many, many years ago and friend and I used to hang out at The Old Town School of Folk Music here in Chicago. Steve Goodman, John Prine, Vassar Clements, Tom Paxton and so many others there.

NICE. All those guys are amazing. They're music is some of the truest I've ever heard. I've seen the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band once in concert. They're awesome. I wish I had gotten the chance to go see Johnny Cash once, but I never did.

My very favorite......and I know this is an unpopular choice.......is Bob Dylan. He's had my heart since I was 12. And that was a looong, long time ago. I have seen him many times in concert and still continue to see him whenever he comes around.

I love Bob Dylan. My Mom used to sing blowing in the wind all the time

Bob Dylan was an amazing songwriter. I'm sorry though, I think his singing kinda sucks...

Same with Tom Petty.

Still, I would listen to either one of them all day long, any day of the week.
