What’s local to me in June?

 

What is local by you right now?

I had no idea, so I asked the internet what is local to my state and what should be freshest this month.

  • Basil
  • Blueberries
  • Cabbage
  • Chard
  • Cherries
  • Collard Greens
  • Corn
  • Cucumbers
  • Eggplant
  • Green Beans
  • Greens
  • Green Onions
  • Kale
  • Melons
  • Wild Mushrooms
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches Peas
  • Pea Pods
  • Sweet Peppers
  • Radishes
  • Scallions
  • Summer Squash
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelons
  • Zucchini
  • Zucchini Blossoms

We do have quite a bit that are year-round foods. My assumption is that this is due to storage of root vegetables/pods and greenhouses.

  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Garlic
  • Herbs
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Shallots
  • Sorrel
  • Spinach (We like to buy it frozen as we use it mostly in smoothies or soups)
  • Sweet Potatoes

Unfortunately I know that a lot of these are spring crop and we will not receive any in our CSA bags this year… perhaps the July crops will come in early!

What are your produce plans this month?
