The snow is finally melting away and spring is in the air! Much like planting season in our greenhouses, spring is full of new growth, fresh scents, and bright colors as plants and animals reawaken in warmer weather.
At NatureFresh™ Farms, our favorite thing about springtime is that we start picking our first Ontario-grown Tomatoes, Peppers, and Cucumbers! That means you can incorporate fresh greenhouse-grown vegetables in all your springtime spreads.
If you love this time of year as much as we do, you will want to find as many ways as possible to celebrate. We have created a list of our top 10 colorful dishes to prepare for your friends and family this spring – all featuring our freshest greenhouse-grown products!
