What's in season in May 2017, and other
May brings with it Spring and the ability to buy
locally, especially in the deep South where fresh strawberries are available in
Florida and Texas, followed by California. Cold weather crops, like spinach,
some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and
early onions being harvested in all but the colder regions. Many markets still
have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.

CSA, and/or PYO.. Not sure if we have any Arkansas or Oklahoma
farmers. If I manage to try one in particular I'll let you
