It is amazing when you realize all the chemicals/dyes/hormones that are in food we eat daily. It really is sad. That is why we planted a garden. I love that we are making tomato sauce from our own tomatoes that aren't treated with pesticides and basil that if freshly picked. Have you started your own little backyard garden? It might be a fun project for you and Cooper. He would love watching his veggies grow.
