A hundred years ago all food was organic, seasonal, sustainable, and quite conventional.

Yes! It's so true! The hybrids I grew organically at home were smaller and WAY tastier than the tomatoes I can buy at the store, plus they were deep red and very numerous (two plants in 4 months produced about 50 adult fruits). The heirlooms I grew organically at home were pretty good too, but... four plants yielded one adult fruit in a whole year.
