Can you believe it is nearly winter? If you are like me you are in holiday mode, but also thinking about getting more organized in the new year. There is just something about a new slate that makes us motivated to do things better. The truth is, any day can be a new start, but with a new year beginning, it feel easier. In preparation for the next season, I have a printable winter produce guide for you.
Bring on the Brussels Sprouts, Pomegranates and Lemons. All of these items are going to be on sale in the coming weeks, so best to plan ahead of time. I can remember eating pomegranates when I was younger and making a mess. These little seeds were always staining my clothes. Brussels sprouts were never on our table because my brother and I did not like them. But with all the wonderful new ways to elevate them, these are one of my favorite vegetables now.

What is your favorite winter fruit?
I love this, although I don't know if I have a favorite winter fruit! Apples for every season.
We do love the options of getting produce from better climates (like yours) and also some people around here grow winter produce in greenhouses. I love that!
How cool that they are growing produce in greenhouses and I agree - apples year round!
