Organic watermelon radishes from Hairston Creek Farm

I was listening to the news last night and heard that scientists "have discovered that strawberries and chocolate have tons of antioxidants" (Didn't we find out that a long time ago?). In any case, they are now diligently working to "increase" the nutritional content of the strawberry and cocoa plants and "make them easier to grow".

Read between the lines: "easier to grow" means more resistant to herbicides and pesticides. Furthermore, if we have just found out how good they are for us (that is, nature has done an excellent job without our help), why would we want to mess with them?

Remember, the only way to avoid Genetically Modified Organisms is to buy ORGANIC. I started buying organic chocolate a long time ago. Start doing that yourselves if you have not done that already.
