If you are eating seasonally, you are eating fruit and vegetables that have been grown naturally and are naturally at their best. This means the fruit and vegetables that you grow have extra flavour, extra crunch and extra juiciness. Some of the produce that you buy in the supermarkets are picked well before they were ready and out of season produce is flavourless. So always eat and grow seasonal produce.
Below is what we can grow in the Autumn/Winter here in W.A. You will have some winners and losers, but the important thing to remember is to never give up. If you are having trouble come along to one of our workshops to learn more or to just ask questions. http://thegreenhouseorganic.com/workshops
