  1. That is a wonderful idea and something I would love to do. Unfortunately, living on an island, almost everything is imported. They even pay farmers here not to grow crops if you can believe that. The other day I got some mint - a herb that can be grown in anyone's garden and even that had been imported.

    1. I remember learning about that in environmental history; how it makes my blood boil! Have you/ Do you grown any edibles in your garden?

    2. I grow a few herbs (I had used all my mint when I bought that) and onions. Another minus for us is we live on the North coast where it is very cold and wet and not ideal to grow things. If we move I will definitely try more veggies though, not only are they more delicious they won't have harmful chemicals either.

    3. That's good! I know how it is to try growing any plants in harsh weather; but I agree. The less to no harmful chemicals, the better. :)

  3. Lovely post!! <3
    They taste sooo heavenly when they are in season.
    It's such a let down when you eat nectarines and they taste like wood :'(
    I really need to keep in mind when it's good time to buy fruits! (ò w ó)

  4. Thank you for sharing these. I don't like most of the veggies listed for winter, but I do love almost all of the winter fruits! I'll be grocery shopping next week, so I'll be sure to look this list over again before I go.

    1. Hahah I guess you could say the winter veggies are the ones that taste the most like Earth/ dirt. You could never go wrong with fruit! (;

  13. Interesante siempre!! No esta mal recordar que lo ideal es consumir frutas y verduras de temporada. Su aporte en agua y vitaminas hacen que sean las idóneas para cada estación.
