Produce in-season

What’s in season?

Hello October and fall weather!!

This year with the encouragement and the help of my sister, I am planting my own winter garden.   Vegetables that grow well in the winter in Texas are onions, beets, radishes, carrots, lettuce and asparagus.  Therefore, I’ve decided to plant my favorite winter vegetables, multi colored carrots, beets and Creole onions.   I will give it a go!  Planting my own garden at this time in my life is a bit ambitious because it’s been a while.  Though, I know what to do since my dad was a farmer and we planted a garden every season.  It was hard work, but we enjoyed eating home grown vegetables all year round.  It will be fun and rewarding. 

In reality, most people are not able to plant a garden.  Though, there’s good news,  we have several farmer’s markets and grocery stores that sell local and organic produce.

It’s better to buy your fruits and vegetables in season as the produce would taste better, fresher, and more nutrient dense. And let’s not forget, it will be easier on your budget- less expensive as it doesn’t have to be shipped from far locations.

Fruits and vegetables are full of antioxidants and immune-boosting benefits to prepare our bodies for the colder months.
