Summer Fruit

Green Tip

Summer Fruit: Organic or Conventional?

We all know that organic food is generally safer to consume, but many can't afford it. You can save money if you know what's important to buy organic and what may not be worth the extra expense. Fruits with edible skins have more of a tendency to attract insects, fungi and rot and are often treated with more pesticides, which can penetrate their permeable skin. For those, it's important to buy organic. But fruits with peels or rinds tend to be naturally hearty and clean. Here are some suggestions:

Buy Organic

Peaches and Nectarines

Strawberries and Blueberries


Imported Grapes


Buy Conventional







"Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its empties today of its strength."

So hard to not worry about things, but have been thinking about it after my sister-in-law posted that she has been worrying about everything, and now she is worrying about her worrying.  Will continue working on living in the present.
