The sun is shining, school is out, the sounds of birds and seagulls fill the air and we can almost hear the drone of “Watch the tram car please…” if we listen closely. This must mean that it’s summer! The summer also means the plants are in full bloom, including fresh produce too!

Be sure to take advantage of seasonal produce, but remember that you can always buy frozen fruits and vegetables for a nutritious choice all year round.  Here is a list of fruits and vegetables to buy fresh this Summer:
