Taste of organic vegetables.

Oct 25, 2010


I have grown my own vegetables for over 50 years.    I am a completely organic gardener and I cannot really tell the difference between organically produced vegetables and chemical fertiliser produced vegetables. 

I hear the cry of horror from all the organic growers but why say something that is not the truth? 

There is a difference in the taste of vegetables though.  If you can harvest the vegetables, take to the kitchen and cook them within say an hour then there is an amazing difference in the taste. 

This is why the best restaurants buy in very fresh vegetables. 

The reason why I grow organically is because it is cheaper, I do not have to eat artificial chemicals and I can harvest and cook quickly straight from the garden. 


This fact is why a gardener must grow a crops, artificial chemical free for 5 years to be "organic grown" for sale to the restaurants as organic. We can tell if it is fresh, but not totally artificial chemically free. I feel that crops that I fuss taste better than the ones I buy. As if the garden work is better than the work that I did to make the money to buy what I can not grow. Still I like knowing who touched my food & how they feel about that food. Joel
I feel the same way. I like to know what is on the fruits and vegetable we eat. Right now we have some wonderful banana growing. See the pictures in photo gallery 1 at
