The Vegetable-Industrial Complex

Thanks Michael Pollan for this depressing view of our nations vegetable supply chain, from the Sunday New York Times, The Vegetable-Industrial Complex.

Yet more reasons to buy locally, or grow your own! A work pal and I have been speculating about putting together a group to buy locally raised meat, time to kick that effort into high gear.

Agreed. That Pollan article was an eye-opener. I had wondered why E. coli had turned virulent, when it's been around forever. ... as Pogo once said, We have met the enemy and it is us.
