Re: Organic or 'conventional'?

I buy some organic things. All of my pulses and herbs are organically grown, and they do taste significantly better than their non-organic equivalents. But for fruits and vegetables I'm not too fussy either way. I find they don't taste much different. Some of my teas are organic; some are not, and again there's not a significant difference in flavour.

I would prefer food to be grown organically -- that's an ideal to me -- but I'm often not sufficiently motivated to choose organic options.

The ideal is driven by how I think humanity should live: in harmony with the natural world, rather than through gradual obliteration of it. I don't particularly like heavy use of pesticides and artificial fertilizers, but it seems to be a necessary evil for global food production at the present time.
