Organic Bugs Me

Yeah, sometimes eating organic gives you a surprise or two.

This afternoon, I was cutting off bits of the farmers market celeriac and plop, out fell a small (dead) worm. SURPRISE! GASP! EEK!

I tossed it in the trash, but then I also noticed another teenie one on the counter that was slightly wiggling. Tossed that one too.

So, what’s more gross? A couple of occasional worms or pesticides? I’ll take the bugs thank you!

Finding them always make me gasp and flutter, but it’s worth it when you know exactly where your food is coming from. Hey and bugs have to eat too, right?

  1. Oh my gosh! I totally agree with you. Creepy, but, those worms are so important in the scheme. So, I cope as well. :)

    So jealous that you have farmer’s markets already. It’ll be awhile around these parts!

  2. It looks like we have farmers markets all year long, but some are a little far. I’m happy there is one closeby that will be until mid march.

    I’m also thrilled because I found a local grains grower. I’ll be placing an order with her this weekend. She sells flour and whole.
