There May Be Reasons for A Lot of Seasons

By Tom Herrin

There seems to be a lot of things that can be copied these days.  The ability of modern technology to duplicate anything continues to increase.  When it comes to foods, there are plenty of artificial things made.  That doesn’t mean they are all bad.  Many of the things that are in demand are created in environments that are not natural - though the food is.  This creates a question at times as to whether or not a copy has the same quality as the original?  Many times, they cannot.  It seems that there may very well be a reason for the seasons in which foods, especially fruits, can grow best.  Eating fruits of the season is a worthwhile endeavor.

The Flavor May Be Better 

When fruits are able to go through a natural process of growing to maturity, they tend to have a better flavor.  Anyone who has eaten fruit picked right from a source, such as a tree, has likely experienced the fullness of flavor that may be achieved from such a process.  Too many times fruit has to be artificially grown or picked early in order to survive long enough for the shipping process.  This sometimes interferes with the natural process of ripening in place.  Many times, the nutrients are not allowed to be completely available when they are picked early.

It Could Save Money

Buying from a local source, such as a farmers market or local grocer, may help to take advantage of a good supply during the peak harvest season.  Availability can mean more affordability for the consumer.  If people choose to be a little creative, they may take advantage of the supply and provide some home cooked meals that the whole family can enjoy.  This can also help to strengthen family ties as more family members may be involved in the meal planning and preparation.

It Can Encourage A Better Environment

Much of the time, local producers who grow for local markets can take advantage of seasonal readiness.  They may use less harmful materials to prepare soils and prevent infestation.  There is also a greater opportunity for community support from both sides.  The growers can connect with their consumers and build a relationship.  This is something that is missing from the supermarket lifestyle so many people live today.  Choosing to buy and eat the foods of the season can provide greater health,  better flavor, and a better relationship within members of the community.  It can be really enjoyable.
