This only makes sense. When produce is in season i's going to be cheaper; not to mention the freshness of the produce.

Again, a reminder of things known and conveniently forgotten.

This is a really great article and people who believe they can't afford to eat healthy seasonal produce is the ticket.

This is a nice article but the "Farmer's Markets" in our area are all commercialized. The venders there go to the warehouses that all the grocery stores use and then sell the stuff as home grown. There is a huge difference is vegetables commercially grown and those home grown. We do have some roadside stands that I do buy from.

The thing to do is to make sure you are getting actual home grown foods and not those from a warehouse or green house.

This is my ninth year planting my garden and I enjoy everyday of getting out there taking care of my garden. I love when it come to canning them. I enjoy looking at them in the jar. They look so pretty and I stack them in order so when I go to get something to cook I know where everything is. In order.

Just this morning my chiropractor talked about his favorite place to pick blueberries-- the only organic blueberry farm in the area. They are a small farm and don't spend the money to get certified, but they assure people they don't use pest sprays or manufactured fertilizers. And my C. swears they are bigger and tastier than anything he has ever tasted. A great testimony for all things good, local, with your own hand involved in someway, even if it's picking 15 pounds on a spring morning.

While the article was good, it lacked some detail.

I found a great article that lists in-seson produce, month-by-month.

This is a great article for people like me that have never been fruit and vegetable eaters because it tells you what is in season when. My husband and I were just discussing this morning that we had no clue what is in season when as we both fit in this category. However, my Publix pharmacist is working with me and wants me on an all natural or organic diet. Therefore, I needed to learn these things. Thank you for this article.

What a great article. I have a couple of suggestions. Buy tangerines. In most stores you can find them in bags. They are a great portable snack, easy to peel and taste great. Also, find a vegetable on sale that you've never had before and try it in a recipe. You may find a hidden winner for you.

Enjoyed completely, with fruits and vegetables coming in season, this article helps a lot. I have already started looking for recipes and where farmers' markets are in my area. Thanks for the good word.... Michele142

I think this is overall a great article and will help me as I am learning how to cook for the first time. One thing I wish it had mentioned, however, is to utilize your local farmer's markets, not just the grocery store. They definitely have fresh produce that is in season, plus it puts money back into your own community. Just a thought.
