So, as much as I need a break from gardening, I am really eager to get back to setting up my garden again because of a new process the government has approved. Irradiating is a new process where food companies will use radiation to rid certain vegetables of bacteria, such as E. coli. By using the radiation, majority of the nutrients in the vegetables will be eliminated. Along, with that, who knows what eating radioactive produce will do to our bodies, especially the bodies of our children. So, the way around buying produce that has been through "chemo-therapy" is to buy Organic (or grow your own). Organic produce will not go through the irradiation process. If you think this is an important issue, you can click on this link to tell the government to shove it. :)
