Potatoes - something to think about

We recently read that if you only can afford to buy one organic food it should be potatoes because they are a root vegetable and roots are where the pesticides go. As if fertilizers and pesticides aren't enough, see that field of dead plants?  

Those are potatoes. Around here, they kill the plants so that all of the energy is put into creating the potatoes. Where does that poison go?  Do they do this to organic potatoes too?

Also, McCain's is nearby. This is their big time of year for potatoes. You will find those potatoes in Perkins, McDonald's and I think Burger King. 

Something to think about.

  1. Here in Skagit they either burn off the tops of the spuds or mow right over them. Lots of organics out here. Maybe some poison the tops I just don't know. Something to think about. MB
