consumer reports: organics

The magazine lists sixteen fruits and vegetables worth buying organic. These selections are ones that tend to build up pesticide residues the most, so if you’re going to dip into organic fruits and vegetables, start with cranberries, nectarines, peaches, strawberries, pears, apples, cherries, cantaloupe, green beans, sweet bell peppers, celery, cucumbers, potatoes, tomatoes, peas, and lettuce.

what are the best things that hinder pests that aren't chemical pesticides?

woot woot. companion planting, tobacco juice, and neem infusions all work well at inhibiting pests in small scale production, like a home garden. encourage birds by planting trees! birds eat bugs.
