The Everyday Shopper's Guide to Buying Produce

Ever wonder how to pick the perfect avocado?  Do you have a hard time remembering when tangerines are in season?  Ever walk around the produce section pretending to look at produce but secretly watching the people who look like they actually know what they're doing when they pick out their vegetables?  If so, these two articles may just be for you.  They're from a website called Wise Bread that puts up all kinds of articles about frugal living.  Hopefully they will be of some help to you, as they were to me.

The first article, The Produce Worker's Guide to Choosing Fruits and Vegetables, is all about how to pick out some of the most common fruits and vegetables that people buy at the grocery store.  It's full of all kinds of little tips and tricks for picking the freshest produce and keeping it fresh at home.

The second article, Fresh Fruits and Vegetables By the Month, deals with which fruits are in season at which times throughout the year--especially helpful if you're like me and have never successfully grown your own plant of any sort and have to buy all of your produce at the store and consequently have no idea when anything gets ripe.

Check these articles out!  You'll be happy you did.  And happy produce shopping!
