I kind of hate to say this but,packaging. Even if a product says organic...if it is smashed into a small bag or is using a lot of packaging, I won't buy it. I will buy something un-packaged that looks fresh, even if it is not organic just because of the way it looks. Also, I shop Farmer's Mkts. when I can although, in Iowa, our growing season is shorter than most states, but I go all summer. I know all the vendors don't grow organic, and some use things to prevent diseases and bugs, BUT...I grew up on a farm and I trust these people. I know anything that comes from a garden in Iowa, can't be all that bad!!

Ugh... I just made a big batch blueberry puree for my baby last weekend, using conventional blueberries because I didn't know that the list had been updated. I TOTALLY follow this list as a way to help me optimize my organic dollars as well as our health.
