He should stick to subjects he know about instead of writing conflicting ideas on something he knows nothing about . I got 2 packs of organic onions in Dunnes yesterday Ä3 and a pack of carrots for Ä2.99 I don't grow them cos I can get them there

Ooh don't get me started on this one!! I'd say to him, 'knock yerself out pal, I'll stick with the organic - when I can find it'!

Here's a thought - if there was more, 'expensive' organic food out there perhaps we would be less likely to throw food away as we do at the moment - by the tonne!

this is the rub - what a lot of gardeners consider organic food (and what they understand to be 'organic' as being the way they grow food) may not dovetail with what can be sold as organic.

it's a very interesting debate, and coloured by lots of points such as what people expect from organic and issues with underlying systems and modes of measuring.

For me it is not just what I get OUT of organic veg (important minerals from a healthy soil) it is what I do NOT get, ie pesticide/herbicide residues.

Yea, I may buy young veg plants in a Garden centre , knowing they may or may not be grown organically but I grow them on and do not use pesticides or insecticides either.
