I can’t believe that spring is here once again and…the seasonal dietitian blog is celebrating its first birthday today!
A year ago today I created this blog with a mission to inspire people to eat in-season fruits and vegetables.
Thank you to anyone who took the time to comment on my Instagram posts, make my recipes and read my blog posts. You truly made my day, my month and my year.
Let’s take a look at what is in season this September…
This month we say goodbye to rhubarb, cumquats, bananas, navel oranges, kiwifruit and avocados. There are some delicious tropical fruits coming into season now including paw paws, rockmelons, Seville oranges, papayas and pineapples.
The vegetables in season change considerably now that it is spring. Vegetables that are no longer in season include cabbages, witlof, celery, pumpkins, swedes, sweet potatoes, kholrabies, turnips, leeks, fennel, Jerusalem artichokes, parsnips, celeriac, Brussels sprouts, okra, kale and onions.
Vegetables coming into season this spring include globe artichokes, broad beans, green onions, lettuce, chillies, peas, spring onions, green beans, asparagus, mushrooms, Asian greens and garlic.
Which in-season fruits and vegetables are you most excited to try this September?
