The Dirty Dozen.....

I have a little secret. I do not buy organic produce as much as I would like to. Why? It costs more. We do grow much of our own fruits and vegetables during the summer months and we use no pesticides. BUT... that only lasts a few short months. If you want to buy some organic produce but are not sure where to start, here is the top 12 items know to have the most pesticides sprayed on them during growing, also know as the "Dirty Dozen". These are the ones you should "go organic" with.

1. peaches
2. apples
3. sweet bell peppers
4. celery
5. nectarines
6. strawberries
7. cherries
8. kale
9. lettuce
10.grapes (imported)
12. pears
