Eating seasonally is just one of the ways we can all reduce our carbon footprint, and even save some money in the process. Since Spring can be an unpredictable season in the garden, cold hardy vegetables and leafy greens are the star of the show this time of year.
You can expand the variety of seasonal produce available by incorporating some leftover winter vegetables. Carrots, beets, and even brassicas such as cauliflower and romanesco are a great way of adding more veggies to your diet during the cool spring months!
