When you have to buy fruits & veggies

I always love to grown my own fruits and veggies, make them bear year round if possible, because I know what goes into them and how I grew them, but oftentimes, I just have to buy some of them from the stores, teeny tiny wee size urban backyards won’t suffice. I sparingly use fertilizers but never apply synthetic pesticides, especially with those chemical names that I can’t pronounce…

So I look up the USDA and the layman’s articles as to which produce have a lot of pesticide residues:

And also the best ways of actually removing most pesticides from these store bought produce:

And am sharing them to you.

But when I’m hungry and there’s nothing in my yard… anything is fair game.
