It isn’t quite summer vegetable season yet but you can still enjoy farm grown vegetables ahead of the summer season! Look for Fresh From Florida in your produce section right now!
Sure I live in Georgia, pretty close to those Sunshine state fruits and vegetables but you can enjoy them too. They get shipped to your produce section too!
We made a slow trip through the produce department at our Publix and look what we found farm fresh right now!
Tomatoes, Cabbage, Radish, Bell Pepper and Snap Beans available in February!
We will be enjoying some Basil Grilled Tomatoes and Grilled Cabbage Steaks this week, recipe links below. I also plan to cook Baked Salmon with Snap Beans. My hubby plans to create a brand new stuffed bell pepper recipe. Can’t wait for that! We have a full menu for the week made from scratch!
I want to challenge you to read the labels and see where your produce was grown. My husband and I probably picked up every tomato in the produce department. We were shocked to see how far away so much of our produce is shipped from!
When you purchase locally grown produce you are not only feeding your family food which is fresh from the farm but you are also supporting American farmers.
A little known tidbit about myself is that I love watching farm programs on early Saturday morning television. They often share recipes and in fact my Black Eye Pea Salsa recipe was inspired early one Saturday morning watching farm shows.
Look for the Fresh From Florida signs in your produce department and the Fresh From Florida logo on packaging.
Tomatoes are not just for salads or sandwiches. Have you tried grilling tomatoes? This simple little two ingredient recipe for Basil Grilled Tomatoes is a great way to enjoy fresh tomatoes!
