April is typically the first month of the year when many of the season’s first fruits and vegetables are at their peak. Both pricing and flavor is better when buying seasonal produce. Recommended and plentiful in the next few weeks are grapefruit and oranges, artichokes, kale, asparagus, lettuce, spinach, rhubarb, green onions and broccoli. I did see some nice looking strawberries too and tomatoes on the vine at one of the local grocery stores. Outdoor farmers markets also open this month.
