I like to buy fruits and veggies that are in season.

Right now I am so enjoying grapefruits!

I get a large pink one, cut it up and put all the slices and juice in a bowl and suck it all down. Fresh grapefruit is so wonderful for your digestion.

I'm also still enjoying many root vegetables from our local organic farm. (They have a root cellar and we pick up our share monthly.)

What else is seasonal this time of year? What are you enjoying now?

Carrot Juice

We're eating spinach, Red Russian kale, tatsoi and a couple of lettuces out of the big greenhouse. The ground is frozen a few inches into the house but the rest is great.

You have a greenhouse on your property? Lucky you. (I'm on my way over!)

Maple sugar is running soon!

I do. Full disclosure - I'm a farmer. I grow for a living. If I didn't I wouldn't just randomly have a greenhouse that's 22 x 48. I'd have one half the size. It's unheated. No sap in my area yet but it's running in other parts of the state.

Swiss chard from last summer, safe in the freezer.

Butternut squash from my root cellar.

Spring is coming here in a few weeks, and the earliest items will be some radishes, asparagas and baby lettuces, but not until June. From then to November, it is great!

Last month we feasted on clementines and tangerines. This month the farmer's market (on an actual farm)had Texas oranges. They were tasty. We have gotten fresh green beans (those I blanched and put in the freezer). I will be glad when spring fully hits and we get more of a selection of local produce.

I had one itty-bitty salad tonight from mesclun mix and arugala that I planted, and have been sheltering from the frosts here in Central Florida. Best doggone salad I have had in ages!
