I've always been an organic gardener and it does have it's challenges but it is so worth it when you can go out a pop a cherry tomato in your mouth right off the vine. I have some physical challenges also and gardening is the only exercise that I get. I use raised beds since I can't get down and kneel.
I weighed 349 lbs last April and now I've lost 60lbs on the 17DD. I don't think it's due so much to the particular diet itself, but to the fact that it's all about unprocessed, healthy foods. The first 17 days are a cleansing process and I was sick for about 9 days from all the toxins in my system. I discovered that I can't eat wheat. If I eat anything with wheat I don't lose weight even if I'm 1200 calores or under.
The point I'm trying to make is that I blame all the chemicals - herbicides and pesticides for messing up my system so I couldn't lose weight. I'm totally against GMO products because the whole purpose of them is so they survive when they spray for weeds and bugs. Now they're spraying Agent Orange. That has to mess with our systems.
Sorry I got on my soapbox - I hope you enjoy your organic produce.
