I have noticed that they taste a lot better. It's not about nutrition--it's my not wanting my son ingesting pesticides.

    Meat? I don't like like organic chicken. I think it tastes gross. I do buy organic filet mignon at Whole Foods--it's fantastic.

    Eggs? I now buy eggs that indicate that they are laid by hens who are free to roam. Whether that's true or not, I'm with Anima. My conscience feels better.
    For fruit you should try pick your own places.
    I got some strawberries a month or two back and they were delicious.

    Organic can be hit or miss, as not all companies have to use farming procedures that you think are organic.

    Famer's markets are brilliant too, if anyone has one locally. Fresh, local fruit and veg, and all sorts of delicious home-made foods.

    I do need to go strawberry picking.

    If I found out that what I was eating was not what I thought it was, I would be okay with it. I have been eating pesticide-ridden fruit since forever. I just became more conscious of it when I had a child. If I turned out okay, he will too if the fruit I have given him is not organic.

    I've had a hard time finding the local farmers market and we live in a rural area. I hear about it from people but can't seem to locate it.

    I think blueberries are finally in season here, we'll make plans for it now.

    I'll eat store bought it makes no difference other than taste. Farm fresh is way better with taste. If you grow your own fruit you can tell the difference.
    The store bought doesn't get to ripen as much which makes a large difference in sugar content.

    Hhm, that just sucks. I'm in a biggish town surrounded by lots of little rural villages, and we have one every week.

    The biggest town near me has about 30,000 people and that is were the Farmers market is.

    We went visiting a historical site this weekend but I may go find that place this coming weekend with some blueberry picking. My kids love outdoorsy stuff as do I.

    There's a hedge in my backgarden that grows blackberries, as well as a rhubarb patch. The nieces and nephews love picking when they come to visit, and it gets them out in the fresh air, so it's pretty much win-win that way.

    I, personally, prefer non-hydrogenated peanut butter. I don't eat lettuce (only cabbage), so I don't really care about the Organic lettuce.

    To me, free-ranged chicken and turkey tastes better than it's alternative. Chicken is not chicken. Same goes for meat, a Happy Cow tastes better than a non happy cow-- just how it works.

    If you give me the option between an "Organic" $5 pint of Chicken Broth vs a $2 pint of Harris Teeter Chicken Broth, then I will go for the non-organic one everytime.

    I prefer non-brand-named almonds. I prefer fresh fruit instead of Dole's Pineapple. I prefer non-frozen items (unless it's ice-cream).

    I am an "outside shopper". I shop for my groceries from the areas around the center Chips-Ahoy induced aisles... I prefer a Whole Foods over a Food Lion, but that's just me.

    I used to have a pretty large garden and fruit patch at my old house.
    I have to live in a town house now.

    We're looking at buying our own home in about a year or so. I can't wait because I've had plans for asparagus, raspberries, blueberries and other things.

    Blackberries grow wild out here. They're everywhere and practically a nuisance to some people. I love them though.

    Farmers markets are just so good.
    Excellent fresh vegetables and fruit.

    I have a apple tree in my garden and pear. And strawberry bush
    It is just the right time of the year and is beginning to grow so big
