WHAT’S FRESH: SPRING IN ZONE 7
This spring may have started out cold and wet, but the warm days have started rolling in. The sun will bring out the spring bounty with the first, hardy braising greens, baby lettuces, and herbs in the first weeks of April. Most of the spring bounty will be available by early May. Before the true heat of summer our farmers start bringing in the most beloved of perennial harvests – asparagus, strawberries, and the elusive wild ramp. Storage items wane as fast-growing, cold-hardy vegetables take their place. Think greens, radishes, herbs, and a plethora of wild things.
