A quick trip to the grocery store has me cracking up, so I thought I'd ask if anyone else has seen this: Vegies labeled "organic" underneath the sprayer (chlorinated water) in the produce isle. Doesn't that just nullify the organic-ness of it all? Why should I (or anyone else) pay more for food that is no longer organic? Isn't there a requirement to maintain the ability to label a food organic? Also; a dear truck-driving friend told me he had to pick up from an organic turkey farm (not free range, but organic) and it was the nastiest place he'd ever seen. I asked him how they cleaned the place, if they weren't allowed any chemicals and he indicated that it didn't look (nor smell) like they had (eeew again), that all they could use was non-chlorinated water. Since he's a strong-stomached old farmer, when he says something's gross, I know it has to be beyond belief. Gee, it would be great if someone on Board knew something about food, its labeling and inspection practices ( ) I'm just about sick of corporate "organics". I got a bad taste (if you will) from a batch of hazelnuts that I picked up that had worms in them (eeew). I can't grow everything that I want to eat (okay, WG & OGM, you can prove me wrong, here ), but ~snivel~ I don't want to wait for a filbert tree to grow when I can go to a local farm to get some. At this point, I'm thinking bring back those good, old-fashioned, kill-all-the-bugs pesticides that really worked and call it dinner.
