I planted some seeds.

Every time I plant seeds, I start to daydream about what I will have in a few months. Sometimes it works. And sometimes I am lucky enough to have veggies in the moment I need them most. A few years ago, when I was about to start chemotherapy, the oncologist gave me a list of food I should not eat. Among them, I could not eat any raw veggie. I asked why and the doctor told me that the pesticides that veggies had could destroy my digestive system. I then asked if I could eat the veggies I grew. I did not use pesticides nor any other chemical. She accepted. My lettuce and my chard saved the day then. Now I have lettuce and leeks (seeds just planted), radishes and zucchini. I love to garden.

What do you use to keep pests away from your crops?

I'd love to have a veggie garden as well. Perhaps someday.

If you wash all the veggies you bought carefully, you should be fine, don't worry. But then again, if you could grow them, why not!
