Eat Local this summer: beginning with asparagus and strawberries

It’s almost asparagus and strawberry time in Ontario, the beginning of *hopefully* a long and prosperous growing season. My cousins run an incredible Organic farm and it’s amazing to be so close to the hard, hard work that goes into their CSA and production every year.

It’s given me a passion for eating locally, of course.

The strawberry & asparagus festival in Toronto is June 2nd, 2013. 

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of what’s in season when, because you really can’t tell the difference from going to the supermarket. So I’m here to remind you that May is Asparagus season in Ontario! (Why am I so excited about this??), followed closely be Strawberries in June!!!!

I can’t wait to take RZ to pick Organic fruits and vegetables! She’s been fascinated with the outdoors since birth, and LOVES plants, trees, and….food.
