Print your free copy, and hang it on the wall, so you can quickly see which fruits and veggies are in season before each trip to the grocery store. 

The calendar has no numbers on the days of the month, you will add those to match the current year. If you laminate the calendar or place it in a plastic sleeve, you could use an erasable marker to add dates and notes.
