Peaches? Blueberries? Bueller?

Seen in a supermarket window in Brooklyn yesterday:
Wait, those are blueberries, not peaches! (Click on photo to enlarge.)

When I got home, just to make sure I wasn’t missing something, I Googled “Are bl
ueberries also known as southern peaches?”


Every day I become more convinced that our lack of knowledge about what is in the food we eat, where it comes from and how it grows plays a huge role in the existence of our dysfunctional food system. If we were taught and learned some basic facts, I believe we would be less willing to accept most of what the food companies offer us.

And if a su
permarket can’t get it right, how will our children?
