From a nutritional standpoint, yes.  Properly grown organic foods have more nutrients than conventionally grown foods.

These are minerals and trace nutrients that come from growing produce in organic "living" soil.  Herbicides and pesticides "chase" these out of the soil.  Roundup, specifically, is a huge culprit.

We can't afford organic, but I do buy all natural meats and produce.

I'm the same.  I won't go out of my way too far to buy organic, and I definitely won't pay twice the price for organic vs. conventional.  My garden is organic and the beef I buy is grass-fed.  IMO, it's better to eat nutritious foods than to avoid buying any veggies or fruits because they aren't organic and thus lose out on any nutrition they offer.

We reeeeeally want to start a garden this spring. Not sure what all we'd grow but definitely tomatoes and cucumbers, would love to grow fruit though. We're likely going to have to grow in pots or something, we have a really bad squirrel problem! We eat a lot of fruits and veggies and it'd save a lot.

 Since I'm making my own baby food, I buy organic for her.  I mainly just stick with the dirty dozen list.  I don't buy everything organic, just the biggies like apples, lettuce, and potatoes.
