fruit and vegtable in season guide

What’s your favorite fruit or veggie? I go ape for Gala Apples…

    I am a summer’s harvest fan. We go berry picking every summer and then I freeze my harvest or make jam so I can eat berries all year long. Same with tomatoes. Pick them in the summer, can and then eat it ’em till way past season’s end.

    This is so helpful, Anna! Thank you! I have been looking up each fruit & veggie individually to make sure they’re in season before I go grocery shopping, so this chart will save me so much time and energy. Thanks again! You’re the best!

    thank goodness bananas are always in season! I was LOVING the tomatoes this summer. Tried buying some a few days ago at the farmer’s market and they’re just not the same- the season has passed :(

Here’s a link I like, but there are many available. […]
