Eating seasonally // June
However, among the abundance of vegetables and fruits that fill the supermarket isles every day I sometimes find it hard to determine whether something is actually in season and therefore from local farms or just available because it still grows in other countries.
With “Eating seasonally” I create a monthly list of what to get and what to leave in the vegetable and fruit isles to help me and others to make better choices while food shopping and enjoy the freshest produce.
Here is to eating seasonally in June.
At its’ best this month... Peas, Broad Beans and Strawberries
Other local produce on the vegetable isle:
Beet root, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Courgette, Iceberg, Lettuce, Leek, New Potatoes, Radish, Rocket, Spinach, Spring Onions
And in the fruit section:
Happy fresh shopping (or foraging), friends!
Note: This list is based on the UK and its seasons and farms, because this is where I currently live and shop. If you live elsewhere in the world, I am sorry that this article might not be as much help to you, but I would be delighted to read about what’s currently growing in your country in the comments.
