    RE: buggy veggies
    My (current) passion is ecological gardening and permaculture, so I want to tell you what I think about bug-infested produce.
    There are relatively few insects that want to eat your produce, but there are a few reasons for an infestation. 1st up is removal of what the bugs really want to eat by monocropping and herbacide application. (Organic? Usually still monocropping, even if it is manually removing other plants.) Monocropping also is not attractive to beneficial insects. Replacing native plants with the European and Asian imports our ancestors favored also screws up the balance. 2nd is the fact that pesty bugs reproduce quickly and in large batches, the predatory bugs that hunt them are bigger, slower to reproduce, and lay smaller batches of eggs. When the pests are rampant, the predators kick up their reproduction, but at the same time “Farmer Brown” sprays some insecticide. (organic? Still an insecticide, even if it is “natural.”) Insecticide gets most of little pests, uh-oh, and most of beneficials. they start reproducing, little pesty ones quickly and in large number, big ones slowly and reduced number. Back to square one. This cycle continues until all of the beneficial insects are eradicated, but enough of the little bad ones remain that infestations are unchecked by nature.
    My best guess is that in a hunter/gatherer situation (which I’m trying to mimic in my own yard), pest infestations were very short lived due to checks and balances provided by Mother Nature.
