Dirty Dozen and More

I’m sure everyone has heard of the dirty dozen, but this is a list I tend to refer back to quite often to make sure I’m getting the best bang for my buck. It isn’t necessary to always buy organic products as this list illustrates, but for the following, it is definitely important

  1. Grapes (Imported)
  2. Potatoes
  3. Kale / Collard Greens (we grow our own greens when the season allows for it)
  4. Cherries
  5. Spinach
  6. Sweet Bell Peppers
  7. Nectarines
  8. Blueberries (Domestic)
  9. Apples
  10. Strawberries (I’ll be signing up for the strawberry option in my CSA this year)
  11. Peaches
  12. (Worst) Celery (This is a staple in my CSA delivery)
