True, but I don't think I will ever really grow my vegetables and fruits organically. I don't even buy organic because it is so much more expensive here.

I live in an apartment in a major city but I love to watch organic gardening shows on TV.

Yes, organic food is more expensive, but growing your own organic garden is not more expensive from growing chemically treated one , in fact, it's cheaper (that's the irony of it all) with a little resourcefulness and cooperation with nature and it's so much fun to grow your own veggies, herbs, flowers. There is nothing like it knowing what you eat from knowing that plant from the time it was just a little seed with a big potential.

Organic is better, but also remember how many pollutants are in your soil, water, and air.

What a wealth of information on the site given. When I was "young" in PA, we had a garden. I do not remember ever "spraying" plants, etc. All grew well. The garden was lots of fun. I wish I had room to plant today. I live in a condo. I have not been as successful with the potted plants.

Very true. Apart from health benefits in terms of oxygen and nutrition, the plants also grow faster. This is really important. Who doesnt want the plants and veggies to grow faster in their backyard.
