Hi Jenni, and many thanks for your comments on 'Which Part of No'. Supposedly we live in an enlightened age but why is it that we have to justify 'not' using chemicals? Shouldn't it be the other way around? 'Oh...excuse me...would you mind if I contaminated your food supply with estrogen mimickers and potent carcinogens? Your husband's sperm count will possibly drop by 30% and you'll be at a much greater risk of breast and other cancers. As for your kids? Well...we're not sure...nobody's ever really done proper testing on about 70% of these chemicals. But still...would you MIND if I slathered it over your garden?' Can you imagine it? But we're treated like lunatics if we object. I'm with you a hundred percent, Jenni. It's an issue I'm passionate about. And I can see you are too. I'm sure you've already read Rachel Carson's 'Silent Spring'...but if not, it's well worth the read. I'm off to check out your writing now. Again, thank you fellow organic grower.
