What produce is in season now? This post will tell you which fruit and vegetables are ripe and in season. There’s a great graphic you can pin to Pinterest to reference any time and you’ll never wonder what’s in season again. Read on for the post!
We’ve all done it: We’ve opened the fruits and vegetables drawer in our fridge only to find out that something has gone rotten, and far sooner than we expected it to. It’s disappointing, and it’s a hard pinch on our wallets, too. No one wants to throw those strawberries that cost a pretty penny—you want to eat them.
There might be a reason for that waste that you haven’t considered, and a way to save yourself the agony of throwing things away (and save some cash, too): think about produce seasonally.
Most people don’t do this. Within reason, they buy what they want to buy at the grocery store, and then they take it home. But a lot of that produce had to trek hundreds, if not thousands, of miles to get to you, meaning it has a greater risk of spoiling when you get it home. So how do you look at things more seasonally? This graphic explains it.

The idea of buying fruit and veggies when they taste the best, are the closest to locally grown as possible, AND are the least expensive all seems too good to be true but that’s exactly what buying in season means.
When you buy in season produce, you can purchase BULK, and then preserve, quickly and easily, wholesome jars with canning.
