Oh yes it is. That is one chemical I sure hate to see come back. I realize that farmers depend on their crops for their livelihood, but sheesh don't they realize the potential damage they are not only doing to the public but to their families as well as themselves.

Weeds and pests are a major problem. They always have been and always will be. There is no getting around it. The amount of money that is spent buying chems every year is staggering. Instead of all the chems a fraction of what is spent would be better used on bringing in beneficials to combat the pests and for the weeds, there are alot of ground cover plants that behave well and could choke out the weeds down isles. All they would have to do is mow em down before they made seed pods.

I was out visiting a farmers market and this guy had some beautiful tomatoes. Huge, perfect in shape and no the first blemish on them. The sign said "Organically home-grown tomatoes" I asked him how did he get such a beautiful crop growing them organically. His response was that his soil was organic. He used different types of manures to feed his plants.

So then I asked him how did he manage to get them blemish free with all the pests around. His response was he used all kinds of chems on the plant leaves and stems.

I asked him, if you using all them chems than how can you say they organic. His response was it all in just using organic soil.

Them maters was so beautiful to look at and had my mouth watering thinking about a mayo, mater and cheese sandwich, but I turned away and went on down and bought some from a farmer who had not so pretty ones but that I knew were totally organic and chem free and ate them with a smile on my face. Sticking tongue out

Exactly Star! and I would have done the same thing. He really shouldn't be able to call them organic if he used chems at all. What's even more disturbing is the cost is going to continue going up as well as the toxicity because they are creating super weeds. They are becoming resistant to the current chems they use just like we are to antibiotics. They keep on the way they are now...its scary. Sad

Oops, sorry.

I thought they were young carrots grown hydroponically or cleaned with a high tech peeling machine. They sound like the veggie equivalent of chicken nuggets.

and it's about time too. Saw a documentary on that. 7 year olds should never have to ask how long they have after being tested routinely for PCBs. While they were interviewing an elderly man some kid came up said his test results and said how long you think I have? the guy said that happens on a regular basis. Sad I do love Ghorgnics too!

Wow, that is terribly sad. I missed the documentary. Even though Monsanto got a kick, it was too small of a price to pay!
