What's in season in May 2016, and other timely information:

Notes for May 2016: Strawberries have a very brief season; and they start in early April in the South, May in most of the US, and early June in the North - don't miss them: See your state's crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops. And see our guide to local fruit and vegetable festivals, such as strawberry festivals and blueberry festivals. Cold weather crops, like spinach, some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and early onions being harvested in all but the coldest regions. Many farms and markets still have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.

You may noticed the new appearance to the website! Simpler, cleaner and mobile-friendly! I'm rolling it out, page by page over the next 2 months. Everything is still here; you can access it from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me!
