    I think the appeal of organic is more that these foods are locally grown, fresher, and tastier than food from the big producers. But producers feed the masses – we need them! And we need cheap food, too. There’s room for both IMO :).

      Thanks, Vinny Grette. I agree with your comment 100%. I also think that if people grew their own crops or some of them, we would all ha e a better appreciation and greater respect for organic growers and farmers in general. I tried to grow my own tomatoes this summer and failed miserably; mostly because of the damn horn worms, of course.

      And I can tell you that my income cannot sustain organic eating, but you can have a nutritious diet on almost any income. Soon, I will write a post about how to save at the supermarket while buying the veggies that we all need to eat.

    I failed too at growing edible plants – ended up with bushels of green beans that everybody grew so sick of eating I ended up giving them all away (which was better than the alternative – throwing them out. Now, it’s just off to the farmers’ market for this little piggy – haha.Looking forward to your next blog!
