Default Are green-house organic veggies nutritious?

Hi guys!

I found a local organic grower of vegetables that are only grown in a green-house. The covering is plastic so they don't use artificial lights but my concern is how the plastic may filter out certain rays of light that may limit nutrient creation in the plants.

Has anyone seen or read information that may shed some light on this thought? I looked online but had no luck.

Most plastic designed for greenhouses is full spectrum.. we have been looking into it extensively this year with a green house on our list... don't worry. go for it. They will be better than anything from your store and freshness really really counts.
Please be advised
I advocate all health blogs linked to NMT.
Read them and explore MMS and CS.

I would almost think it would be better, because the plants dont get the pollutants from the air. Surely they are giving the plants extra nutrients.

Yes, I think I'd go for it too. See what you think of the flavor/taste esp. of the tomatoes.
May you always have..Love to Share, Health to Spare, and Friends that Care!
