Don't Panic, It's Organic
If I see quilting cotton or cotton jersey that is organic, I like to use it. It makes me feel like having it next to my skin will be a softer and more healthy experience.
When I see organic veggies in the market or when I used to eat them from a local CSA box, I feel like I'm avoiding chemicals but also getting food that just tastes better.
Tomatoes are probably my favorite food, but only if home grown. I'm not the only person on the planet who thinks tomatoes from the store taste more like card board than actual tomatoes.
Above are some of the tomatoes that came out of my garden this year. When you slide them open, they have both yellow and red flesh inside. Low on the acid and delicious.
I make salsa or cover them w/ a little oil and vinegar to put on toast.
The kids are not sure about them, even though they helped grow them. I find that a little funny. I often think that if I get them invested in the process that will magically make them want to eat the results. Turns out that is not always the case.
Either way, more tomatoes for me.
