seasonal produce?


Are you automatically de-listed as a foodie if you can't answer simple seasonal questions at the park?

I was stumped today when my friend Coralie (from Belgium) asked about strawberries being available in winter in Australia. 

Good point. 

I'm sure they're a summer fruit, so how come they're on special at Woolworth's this week?

Maybe they're grown hydroponically. I really must go back to the growers markets. I'm completely untuned.

If you have the answer, please let me know!

Have a wonderful weekend. I'm going to the markets.

Here’s a link of when food is in season:
and yes, strawberries aren’t in season. That said, our strawberry patch definately has some growing and although they are nowhere near ripe atm they will certainly be ready before summer. Does that help at all?
