July’s veggies

What’s good to eat this month?
Some of the vegetables available in the UK in July are:
Globe artichoke, asparagus, aubergine, runner bean, beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, black cabbage, carrots, courgettes, fennel, garlic, lettuce & salad leaves, new potatoes, onions, peas, pepper, radishes, rocket, spinach, spring onions, tomatoes, turnips…

Seasonal local food is fresher and more nutritious, it doesn’t have to travel far to reach your table so the energy to transport it is reduced. This way you support the local economy and also you don’t pay anything extra for transportation. It is a good way to respect the cycle of nature and to feel a greater connection with the passing seasons through what you eat too.
If you go shopping at a local food market it is easier to find seasonal food grown in the UK, look for local farmers.
