A Seasonal Year: Summer

A Seasonal Year: Summer

Welcome to summer!

 

Summer Rituals

  • Make sure you always have a batch of homemade lemonade in the fridge for cooling you down on hot sunny afternoons (or to take along on a picnic!).
     
  • Eat outside as often as possible. Even if it's just ten minutes with your morning coffee!
     
  • Choose organic fruit and veg. There's no better time to take advantage of veg box schemes than in the summer, when most products will come from the UK.
