Here is an update on what produce is currently in season and a resource for what to plant in your late summer/fall garden. The below list of in-season produce is a good indicator of what fruit and vegetables will have the best prices. Greater supply…lower prices. Plus, in-season produce is often grown closer to home than out-of-season produce, which we import from Chile, Mexico, and other countries. Expect prices for early summer fruits and vegetables to rise.
The following list of fall fruits and vegetables comes from FruitsAndVeggiesMoreMatters.org. The list includes many hardy lettuces and squashes. If you can’t remember what is in season, price is a good indication.
My summer garden is nearly finished. I’m picking red and yellow onions this week, the last two heads of cabbage, more basil, and oregano. That will make room for carrots, broccolli, and my late summer/early fall garden. I also want to plant snap peas and beets, which I love to eat and which can withstand frost.
