The North America What's In Season Thread

Looked around a little and haven't found an existing thread like this. I'd love to start shopping with more of a sense of what's in season and I love to know what's in season where I'm going when I travel.

I thought maybe people could post in reply to each month below with what they know or see to be in season. I realize what's in season will vary by region, so maybe it would be a good idea to include information about the state or region to which you're referring. I got things started with the season for chokecherries out here in the Southwest.

Can't wait to see what comes up.

            Wow Gio! My CSA in Norwell won't start up for at least another month or two. They have NOTHING growing now.

              Actually foodie, I think most of that produce is over Wintered root cellar stuff, but it is available and seasonal to a certain extent. CSAs around here don't begin until middle May or so.
              If anyone thinks I should have the post deleted let me know and I will. Or flag it.

                No, I think that makes sense. Maybe edit and say "cold/cellar storage" like the note about the greenhouse products?

            This month, we are harvesting from our Napa Valley garden:

            artichokes, asparagus, kale, "italian dandelion" (chicory), and winter-grown (or over-wintered) cabbages, cauliflowers, carrots and celeric, broccoli raab, lettuces, spinach, spring onions, the last of the tangerines. And, always, parsley, thyme, mint, and eggs.

              San Francisco Bay Area - mid Peninsula:

              In my yard, the blood orange and lemon trees are producing like there's no tomorrow. The miner's lettuce that colonized the yard has finally shown up. I have 2 strawberries!

                Here in MN, snow.

                Freshly falling from the sky. Helping keep all of the leftovers we didn't have room for in the fridge cold in the garage.
