Questions About Organic Produc

Interesting piece on the globalisation of organic good production. The premise being how green can it be to transport food across the globe. Certainly makes you think.

I grow my own veg on my allotment, and I consider its grown organically. Not organic as described by the taliban, sorry the organic lobby.
I use as few chemicals as possible. I use FYM but that’s not ‘organic’ as the straw will have had pesticides applied, and the cattle may have received medicines.

Oh yes, i try not to use chemicals, but I don’t have time to cut slugs in half with scissors so I use pellets. Rates as appropriate of course.

Transporting French beans from Africa onto Europe by jumbo jets doesn’t sound too organic to me.
