Hm, not a great time to answer this question... not a lot is in season (there are only about three). One of them is sweet potatoes, which I do enjoy. Butternut squash is pretty good too, I suppose. I love oranges, although I don't know if they're "in season" now...

Great, Karen! I'm liking Cabbage, turnips and of course, carrots. But in the frozen food section there's lots of vegs in season!

Where are you that strawberries are in season? Or do you use frozen? I agree w/Linda C!
S-i-l likes Brussel Sprouts (he says) but daughter gets sick from the odor, I've never had any that taste good, but am willing to try--somebody said chopped, w/lots of garlic, not cooked too much. To me, they do NOT taste like cabbage--I love cabbage! Any other suggestions for cooking them?

I'm not sure what is in season and what's not, but I love apples, blueberries, and bell peppers. I try to buy proudce from the local farm stand during the summer, can't wait for that!

Being in Alaska - not much is ever "in season" until the farmer's markets open up in the spring. But we are thankful our grocery stores do carry a variety of organic friuts and veggies. In our frig now are clementines, strawberries, pomegranates (tail end of their season), several greens, and peppers. We are growing our own herbs in an Aerogarden and they are taking off fast! Already used the dill and basil this week!

It's an indoor tabletop growing system...container, light, pump, all with an easy timer. Check it out at aerogarden.com You can grow herbs, veggies, flowers...so many options! You can buy premade seed pods but we make our own with our own seeds and the aerogarden sponge starters. This way we have access to fresh herbs during the winter and then plant more outside in the summer!

This sounds like a great way to eat fresh greens all year. I will check it out. Thanks for sharing.
