It has been interesting reading your thoughts.
I remember somebody complaining to the produce manager that she found a bug or worm in the organic broccoli. He told her she should buy the non-organic. And she had the nerve to be miffed.
I went to the store the end of last week. Most of the organic produce was 50% higher than the regular. and all of it has to be shipped in.
this summer, I will shop the farmers market. about 1/3 of the vendors advertise that they are organic. I have never seen organic fruit.
But like many of you said . . . I can't afford to shop strictly organic.
