Seasonal produce for April

Posted March 23, 2015

Every spring is a fresh start for the trees, the grass, the flowers and my favorite: the garden! As we welcome the warmer temperatures, we also receive a fabulous bounty of frugal spring vegetables and fruits. Here is a list of seasonal produce to look for at the farm stands and grocery stores in April.

I always look forward to the great deals on asparagus, strawberries, and more in April and May!

April Seasonal Produce






Snow pea tips




Sweet potatoes


You'll also find good deals on oranges in the grocery store, even though they are not grown locally.

For more information on what's in season each month, see the NC Department of Agriculture website.

Are you growing a garden this year? My youngest daughter and I planted herb seeds last week including sweet basil, cilantro and mint. The veggie planting starts soon!

    Melissa - sounds like a great garden! I start craving fresh tomato and cucumber sandwiches as soon as the first Spring flowers appear.

    We planted radishes, romaine, spinach and onions yesterday. The cucumbers go in in April and the tomatoes soon after. So excited!
