  1. I’ve read that buying fruits and vegetables when they’re in season is more economical and better for the planet (food doesn’t have to travel as far to get to the grocery store shelves when it’s picked close to home). Not to mention fruits and veggies taste better, too. Thanks for the comprehensive list.
