Why should I eat seasonally?

  • It’s easy on the wallet: seasonal = abundance = less expensive.
  • You eat for taste, don’t you?: When food is not in season locally, it’s either grown in a hothouse or shipped in from other parts of the world. Less fresh = less tasty.
  • Save the planet: If it’s not in season locally, it’s going to travel long distances to get to your table.
  • Transportation also can sometimes mean irradiation (zapping the produce with a burst of radiation to kill germs).
  • Best bet: grow what you can yourself. (See Herb Garden)
