Since I’m always on the google looking up when particular fruits and vegetables will be in season here in Australia, I thought it’d be useful for me – and for you – to keep a catalogue of what’s fresh when bookmarked here. I like to have a scan of the list at the beginning of each moth for meal planning inspiration based around local produce when it’s at its cheapest and most delicious.

I’ve set up the list so you can click on the month title and it will take you directly to that bit of the page so you don’t have to scroll around. You can then quickly return to the top by clicking on the link at the end of each list.

Hi there! Followed you over from my site, and love your blog :)

This post is super handy, I have been eating locally and seasonally for a while now and it’s great to plan ahead (I have been grieving the end of apple season here in Brisbane!).
