slugs, worms & dirt

I rarely find the time to read all the wonderful things in my blogreader. But every once in a while I find a little gem like this article bei Mac @ pesky’apostrophe

Bugs and worms and slugs and dirt might not be pleasant and it might not be something you want to eat, but it’s a fact of life. Vegetables are grown outside in the dirt. Bugs and worms and slugs are outside all over the place, and they’re going to crawl around on the vegetables that you eat. And the average person ends up eating 200-800 mg of dirt per day, anyway. But Mr. Fish won’t hear it. In his head, vegetables are grown in hermetically-sealed pristine clean rooms.

Not that I like to eat worms and stuff …. but I think I have my own Mr. Fish at home 😉

  1. Actually, greenhouse tomatoes aren’t grown on dirt, but on mineral wool substrates. They get a well defined quantity of nutritious solution every day with exactly the right amount of what they need. No risk of slugs, wurms, dirt or taste.
