August/February: Think summer fruit
As I’ve done in previous months, I’m updating with the list of fruits and veggies that appear as seasonable on the organic farm website that I was ordering from in Argentina. I’m going to keep updating with their info until I complete the year. What’s actually available down there appears in bold below. This may, of course, vary from area to area.
At the same time, I’m updating older posts with the current UK availability with fruit and veggies that are available locally in the stores up here. At some point, I hope to have a fairly comprehensive list. I know seasonal availability varies greatly, with some climates having a much wider range of available produce at any given time, but some things are pretty standard.
Fruit: apricots, blackberries, blueberries, boysenberries, cantaloupe, grapes, honeydew, kiwi, peaches, plums, raspberries, strawberries, watermelon
Veggies: corn, cucumbers, eggplant, green beans, herbs, lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, summer squash, zucchini
Then there are odd, out of season things available such as: apple, cabbage, carrot, chard, onion, orange, pear
