There is a time and a season for everything

There is a time and a season for strawberries and apricots. That’s summer.

There is a time and a season for guavas and avocados. That’s winter.

“Together we shall rejoice through all the seasons” Kahlil Gibran

Different foods come at different times of year. Berries need the sun and warmth and buying them in winter prompts suppliers to heat greenhouses and battle the natural seasons. Wait a little.

In the mean time there are all sorts of good things around…

Winter veggies

Asparagus, beetroot, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, gem squash, kale, leeks, mushrooms, potatoes, onion, parsnips, peppers, pumpkin, radishes, spinach, spring onion, sweet potatoes, swiss chard, tomatoes, peas, turnips.
