I want to do as much organic as I can since we know I am chemically sensitive

Stuff like Aspertame can put me in the hospital and nitrates and MSG tend to leave in sick and in pain. I cannot use a lot of detergents like tide and cheer as I break out everytime. So we figure if it is part to get detoxed organic is the way to go or at least for a good part of it. We will be putting gardens in and growing a lot more so even when we are off of the juicing we can still have a good amount of produce.

As for seeds I love seeds. We call the Bakers Creek Catalog seed porn lol. I have a good healthy collection of organic heirloom so will not need to buy any. From time to time I do place an order with Tomato Bobs. Every month they have a collection of .50 packets of seeds. This helps with our abundance of seeds. Until the last 2 years when I started getting sick we used to grow a good amount. Hope to get back to that soon.


When we started juicing, I made the decision that it was better to juice “regular” vegetables and fruits than not juice at all because we couldn’t afford organic. Not saying that is the decision everyone should make, just saying for us.

We are one of those people who grow organically, non-GMO, heirloom, but never in a million years would I be willing or able, to do what Kathryn has done and get certified. So while I hear what Kathryn is saying, we are definitely in the camp Robin speaks of.

Of course, most of the reason we grow organically and heirloom is because I can’t afford pesticides and I’m too cheap to purchase seeds every year, LOL. Non-GMO is just because I hate Monsanto (the food side of them anyway) on principle.
