Husband was speaking to a bloke yesterday and the talk got onto diseases and how chemicals and crap in the food supply could be contributing. I agree with this, I think it is more than likely that people, kids too, are sicker now because we are being slowly poisoned. Anyway, This bloke said that his neighbour, in our town, grows potatoes, commercially, and when they are ready he sprays the whole crop with Roundup!! WTF!!!! I'm not sure if it is true but this bloke has no reason to lie about it. He sprays the plant and it apparently goes down into the spud and it hardens the skin on the spud and saves the growers 4 to 5 weeks. Or so he says Unfortunately, I believe that it is very probable. This bloke says that he has been growing his own potatoes since he found this out. ...
Now I'm not fussed on spuds, I could easily live without them. Not so husband. I grow a few, enough to have fresh when he wants them but I have bought a big bag when I know he is going to be home more often than usual but hearing this has made me think about growing heaps more.l He will continue eating bought ones but as I probably won't be buying them anymore...I'll need to dig up a big patch of ground somewhere and see if I can get a *proper* supply. It will be my next big challenge.
Has anyone heard of this. What do you think the chances of it being true are?
