More than 7200 “registered” pesticides, fungicides and herbicides used in the food production industry.
I wonder how many are “unregistered”?
If you are like me and would love to buy organic products all the time, but budget is making it tough, here is a list of fruit and vegetables you should prioritise to buy organic due to the impact of the pesticides, fertilisers and growth hormones that are used on them.
It is amazing how easy it is to grow some veges with a little bit of TLC and a lot of netting to stop the butterflies eating my broccoli or laying their caterpillars aargh.
I am loving going out daily with my daughter and getting her to help water the vegetables and putting in a bucket what we will eat that night.If you have some space in your garden or on your balcony try a little organic garden.
Here are a few snaps from our garden – Our lemon tree, mandarin tree and my little tomatoes.
