One of the great advantages of living in a place so full of great produce is that you can get some amazing fruits and vegetables. The problem is that you need to be able to pick what will be best and to do that you have to know what is in season.
Now, figuring that out has never been one of my strengths. I mostly had to make that decision based on price and quality. Now, thanks to Stauffers, I found this amazing little chart. Many of the grocery stores have been pushing hard to let everyone know that their providers are all local. You can see signs informing which local farm grew specific vegetables or even a map showing where they are all located.
Why I Like It
Personally, I do like that! However, I’m still always a little unsure about what I should be getting. The other problem with that is that I can be a very impulsive shopper so I might see some beautiful strawberries or vibrant bell peppers and I just have to take them home.
Planning ahead helps with that. What’s more, planning ahead using a chart like this one showing what fruits and vegetables are in season can make life so much easier! Try it out and let me know how it works out for you.
Enjoy the chart!
