Potatoes and Pesticides

One dollar is what it currently costs for a large 5 lb bag of Russet potatoes at the grocery store – very tempting for a large family on a budget. As much as I love potatoes in all its tator glory, I think I’ll pass on the cheap prices when even potato farmers refuse to eat the very potatoes they harvest because of the large amounts of pesticides used. Hopefully sooner than later, organic prices will become more universal. In the meantime, check for sale prices on sweet potatoes, which are not only good for your health but also contain less pesticides.
