They might have had variety over the course of the year, but at any given time of year, you had few options available. Nowadays, if I want a vegetable with my dinner, I can get any vegetable I can think of, no matter what time of year. Back then, if you wanted a vegetable, it was whatever the fields were producing right now, if anything.
