What produce is in season now? This post will explain what produce is in season now so you never throw wasted produce out again. Read on to find out which produce is ripe, ready, and in season!
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.

What to do with your seasonal produce:
So, what do you do with this information? Well, I think the advantage of buying produce when it is in season most immediately is that it is less expensive. Cheap produce is often the most plentiful, but buying pound after pound of produce can be overwhelming. Canning your produce when it is ripe and inexpensive is the best option for enjoying produce picked at it’s peak all year round and I have a completely free Canning Basics Course you can sign up for to learn how to preserve food in glass jars!Sign up now!
