Food in Season

eating locally all year long

In Season – April

on April 18, 2012

Genesis 1:29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

Welcome to Food in Season! It is April, and here is Western Pennsylvania we are just starting our seeds. May will bring the first of the farm vegetables, but dont think there is nothing you can do about earting locally!
Maybe you are still working on foods you preserved last fall. Maybe you are lucky enough to have a root cellar and are working on your stored winter veggies. Maybe you have a green house. But if you have none of those things, and want to start eating local now you have come to the right place! Growing right in my yard are three usable things.

Onion Grass

 

Wild Violets

Dandelions

I am still in the learning process of eating local so there may be many more available wild foods. Ramps and morel mushrooms grow around this time of the year, but I have not found any yet. Throughout the month I will feature recipes for these wild items as we wait for our plants to grow!
