The last week has been spent in Tampa for an FDA course on Food Outbreak Investigations focusing on the fields where produce is grown. Since it was for my job I can't write about all of the awesome stuff I learned. I can say that if it is information that you are interested in learning about you can look up, "Good Agricultural Practices" online. There are "Global Gaps" and "Gaps for the Garden". All great information!
The top link is the hard core sciency info and the second link is the easier to read guide for home growers of fruits and vegetables. Both are full of great information! The last link is to the CIW website where I obtained the above picture. Enjoy!
