There’s no question that fruit and vegetables taste better when eaten in season, it’s cheaper and contains more nutrients.
As always, I am an advocate for eating with the seasons where possible so let me share with you what’s in season this summer:
Berries are in season and blackberries make their first appearance now, along with melons and peaches. Sweetcorn, broccoli, beetroot and courgettes come into season along with:
Melon (coming into season)
Peaches (coming into season)
Asparagus (end of season)
Beetroot (coming into season)
Broccoli (in season from end of July)
Cucumber (coming into season)
New potatoes (end of season)
Potatoes (maincrop) (coming into season)

Enjoy the bountiful produce, everyone!
