Foodland Ontario Produce Availability Guide for your iPod

On 20, Jan 2007 | One Comment | In Apple, Food, iPod, Ontario | By Ryan Feeley

Foodland iPod LogoI like to cook, and am happiest using fresh local produce. Sometimes I refer to the Foodland Ontario Produce Availability Guide which lists when Ontario fruits and vegetables are in season and at their peak. I don’t have a mobile browser and even if I did, the site would not work well on it. So I decided to make a version that would fit on an iPod.

  1. Download the iPod Notes Version (ZIP)
  2. In iTunes, enable disk use.
  3. Copy the Guide into your Notes folder.
  4. Unmount iPod.
  5. Browse to Extras » Notes » Ontario Produce
  6. Read the Read Me file
  7. Eat Local!

iPod Notes

If you would like easier access to the Notes you can do so in:

iPod › Settings › Main Menu › Notes (turn on)

Enjoy! Source: Excel (ZIP)
