Jannine Cabossel commented on Jannine Cabossel's blog post 'Grocery store produce—is it GMO, organic or conventionally produced?'
"Jennifer- That's true about not having to label GE produce yet, but I wonder since there are labels for conventional and organic produce and someone doesn't want to use a GE label, then how would they do it-maybe not label at all cause…"

Jennifer commented on Jannine Cabossel's blog post 'Grocery store produce—is it GMO, organic or conventionally produced?'
"Thanks for sharing this, Jannine. The 8 is a great way to identify GMO foods, but it sounds like, according to Food Renegade and the Huffington Post, it's an optional system, which means not all grocers choose to use it. Still very useful…"

Grocery store produce—is it GMO, organic or conventionally produced?

Is this orange conventional, organic or GMO?A friend ask me the other day if there is produce out in the supermarkets that are GMO's. I did some research and I found out that those tags we see on the fruits and vegetables in the produce section of your grocery store actually give us more information than the price. The tags are called PLU numbers-PLU stands for 'Price Look Up'. So I went to all the…See More

" I totally agree about the dread of things being placed wrong-so glad many of us feel that way but it is good to see this so that we may perhaps be able to make some changes that would work better. Not everything could change but little stuff…"

A bit about me:
I have a blog on growing vegetables and giant vegetables on http://giantveggiegardener.com that I would like to share with homegrown.org folk.
I am a Master Gardener living in Santa Fe, New Mexico where the growing season is short, the altitude is 7000 feet high, the soil very alkaline, miserably hard and lacking organic materials. It is considered to be a high desert but is located at the base of the Sangre De Cristos mountains and below a ski area. It is in a Zone 5 growing season. So to say it is challenging growing things here is an understatement. I am an organic grower who practices sustainable growing techniques.
I want to share my 25 years of growing experience and knowledge with the public. I’m no expert, but I’d like to share what I’ve learned and picked up through the years as well as share this season’s gardening as it unfolds.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Giant Pumpkin Soup
Currently reading:
Four-Season Harvest by Elliot Coleman
Currently listening to:
Talking Heads
My latest DIY project:
Finished my cold frame. Working on a greenhouse.
