I bought organic carrots one time because the regular things weren't as fresh.  
I sure wonder about the additional cost ....... is it worth it?  What's your opinion?

I've bought them several times when they look better than the other veggies.  Don't buy them all the time.

Sometimes.  Depends upon what the regular veggies look like and the price.

I think the quality and taste of organic is much better,but the price is higher.I used to grow everything that I could but I'm unable to now.I still grow my herbs in pots on my porch it's so nice to go out and pick it fresh.My son still puts in tomatoes and peppers,we get the plants from a friend and they were grown organically.If you have the time and space this is something to consider.Freeze and can,it doesn't get much better than that.I still can a little.I am just getting ready to pack my home made sourkraut in quart jars.This was a new adventure for me.

The cost is a little prohibitive; I do buy them when I can.

The cost is somewhat prohibitive; I do buy them when it's possible, both fruits and veggies and some prepackaged products.

I buy some organics.  But truthfully the cost is a big factor.  I tend to buy organic cereal more.  Mainly because the stores will put that on sale sometimes.

Oh thanks Nancy,I miss my pond so much,we had to fill it in because I can't take care of it any longer.I found this picture of the water lilies and it just makes me feel better to look at it.I had water lilies and other aquatic plants, fancy fantail goldfish and a couple of bull frogs,That was my special place to go when I was caring for my Mom.I would sit there and just get lost.Birds like I have never seen would show up and beautiful dragonflies,it was magical.

I don't purchase organics on a regular basis.  If the price is close to the regular stuff, I may opt for the organic.

I kind of get angry when I think about organic foods.I think everything we eat should be organic.I bet most of it was when we were growing up.The FDA should make sure that we eat only the best and not food that is tainted with chemicals and hormones.I feel there would be more people employed if this were the case.Corporate greed has allowed this to happen.Get more out there and spend as little money as possible doing it.OK better stop before I get myself in trouble.

My boss & her sister are the original organics.  Her sister's been eating organic for years.  They say don't pay more for organic foods except milk.  If you have girls, organic milk is especially important or their boobs will group huge & develop way before the rest of their body

Organic Fruits and vegetables have no more nutrients than regular.  If you feel you need to avoid pesticides and "Unnatural" fertilizer, then go organic.  Other than that it is a waste of money.  We grow our own tomatoes every summer, so I guess those are "organic".

Nancy - I bought the celery first but didn't notice any difference in taste, but the organic carrots tasted much sweeter and the color was a deep, intense orange.  The taste reminded me, going way back, to the way they tasted when my Mother cooked for the family.  Isn't that strange? 

I can't remember where I read that celery and carrots were the most sprayed veggies.  Seems hard to believe! That is one reason I purchased the veggies but I can't see paying the price either, for fruits etc.  I, too, think it is wise to grow your own, if you can.  Although, I will prob. continue with just these two because it makes me feel better and I love celery in my soups and stews and the carrots really do taste better!!
