I love it when that happens! I usually try not to look because I don't want to know how much more I'm paying. I also use a CSA so I don't see individual prices on most of our produce. I'm glad to hear organic is becoming more mainstream!

Just returned from a trip to the grocery store (Sprouts/Sunflower - a semi-health foodish grocery) and was comparing the "dirty dozen" as well as some other produce. Organic pears? Only 20 cents more per pound than the non-organic on-sale pears. Organic apples? If I bought a 5 pound bag (I did) I paid the same price per pound as the non-organic counterpart. Organic celery was only 20 cents more expensive as well. While some items were considerably more expensive (sweet potatoes, for example) others were very close in cost and lettuce was actually CHEAPER if you bought organic! I bought only a few non-organic items and spent only a few dollars more. Just need to keep our eyes open!
The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
