I went to the Farmer’s Market in Valencia this morning and bought some strawberries and tomatoes which, I was assured, were organically grown. The salesman from Harry’s Berries was adamant that they were grown without any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc.

However, I revisited another farmer’s booth, Timber Canyon Ranches, and was now told that they use chemical fertilizer on some of the produce that I had purchased earlier. This came as a shock as, earlier, I had been assured that the avocadoes and oranges I was buying were organically grown but just not certified as organic.

A word of warning to consumers: question the salesperson until you are sure of what you are buying.
