What's On Your Produce?

toxicproduceEvery once in a while I come across a news story that just turns my stomach.  This CNN report on pesticides in produce was one of those stories that made my stomach somersault both figuratively and literally.

I am not generally a fan of the US media/news outlets as often their information seems to be more drama and less facts.  This article, regardless of it's credibility, made me stop and think about what we eat on a regular basis.  I am very happy that so much of my produce comes from my garden!  It also makes me want to do a bit more research on this area.  Anyone have any good resources?  Feel free to put links in comments below.

What are your thoughts on pesticides in commercial produce?

  2. Anything by Michael Pollan is good, but like the story you mentioned, you may wish you hadn't read it.
    BTW, the kids and I survived John's absence with only a few minor injuries.

  3. Thanks Jennifer - and glad to hear you all made it. I was thinking about you guys this past weekend and hoping you got a well deserved break!
