February Seasonal Foods

Created on Sunday, 03 February 2013 13:27

February Seasonal Foods. No matter where you are in the US, SOMETHING is growing seasonally that is less expensive, fresher, and more nutritious. You'll also be reducing the carbon footprint, creating less pollution, and sparing the energy it takes to transport these foods thousands of miles. Here in Santa Fe, we can pick arugula, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, lettuces, carrots, onions, shallots, leeks, beets, parsnips, cilantro and most herbs besides basil, celery, brussels sprouts, kales, chards, and bok choi. So buy and grow local, and put the brakes on things that can wait till Summer!
