Florida’s Planting and Harvesting Season Chart. I’ve shown you the chart above a couple times, but I like to trot it out occasionally to show everyone where we are in the growing and harvesting cycles.
The last couple weeks we’ve had strawberries, oranges, grapefruit, squash, beans, cucumber, romaine, and peppers all harvested here in Florida. What a great place to live.
As you can see from the chart, we’re in the planting and harvesting part of the cycle for many things, but soon there will be a bounty of local items being harvested.
Florida is ranked 2nd or 3rd (depending on what you measure) after California for the most fruit and vegetables harvested. Having two harvesting seasons allows us to have fresh local food most of the year.
I’m very proud to be providing this food to you and our local food banks.
|Yes, some of the large grocers and other sources give fruit and vegetables to them, but 𝐰𝐞 𝐝𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭-𝐨𝐟-𝐭𝐡𝐞-𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐚𝐯𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞.|
I’ve been told we could give more quantity if we donated cheaper less expensive food. More potatoes and onions? But I refuse to do it. Donations are always the same food provided to you.
Thank you for participating. Thank you for all the recurring orders we had last week!
