We all know that veggies are good for us, but to get the best flavours and freshest ones, you have to go for what's in season. This is real important because food not in season either comes from abroad or has been hanging around for a while. Food from abroad can be very good and there is no getting away from the fact some things will not grow in the UK, but the downside is we don't know how it has been grown. I've just been reading a good article all about this and hopefully it will be useful when deciding what to buy.
