Food in Season

eating locally all year long

What’s in Season? May

on May 1, 2012

Leviticus 26:4 I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit.

Well April flew by. I never got to my dandilion recipe, but I will soon. I never used the wild onions. But May is here, and things will be in season soon. May is the month most farmer’s markets up. Your green spring vegetable will be popping up. You will finally have soemthing besides perserved food and root veggies if you only eat local.

 

So what is in season in Pennsylvania
Arugula
Asparagus
Chard
Fava Beans
Garlic Scapes
Lettuce
Parsley
Radishes
Scallions
Thyme

Fresh, tender spring greens are the first signs that the lighter dishes of spring are on their way (and that hearty winter eating is coming to an end). LET THE SALADS BEGIN! Spring vegetables are not good preserved unless you consider drying herbs.

  1. I keep chuckling about dandelions. I’ve got a yard full of them, so when you find your recipe, you can have ours.
