- We're still eating things from the fall crop, things like apples, pears, winter squash, potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic. We're really. sick. of. apples.
- Greens: chard, kale, collards, early tender greens
- Rhubarb is in full swing
- Culinary herbs
- You'll find wild morels now!
- Get info at the Puget Sound Mycological Society's website: http://www.psms.org/
- Razor clams - next dig set for May 15-16
- Some Alaskan salmon, look for sustainable and wild-caught
- Halibut, sablefish, and black cod (March to November)
- King salmon
- Copper River salmon comes into season this month. (droool...)
- Lilacs and hellebores. We're especially enjoying the scent of the lilac in our back yard right now.
- Lots of bulbs: tulips, blue-bells, etc.
- Dogwood trees. This is the time of year I get dogwood envy, the trees are so lovely with their creamy white and pink blossoms.
- Fruit trees: cherry, apple, pear, crabapple, etc. Just don't park under a flowering cherry tree like I did. The car was a mess.
MEAT & EGGS
- Barnyard animals are having their babies right now. This means veal in a few months, and lamb in the fall and winter.
- Eggs - our hens are laying about 5-6 eggs daily. We can't keep up. It's insane.
- Chicken - lots of eggs means spring chickens in a few weeks (but not for us, a rooster-less household). Farmers markets will have fresh birds later this month
