What's in season in January 2018, and
other timely information:
Notes for January 2018: Strawberries have a very brief season;
and they start in early April in the South, May in most of the US, and early June in the North - don't miss them: See your
crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops.
And see our guide to local
vegetable festivals, such as
strawberry festivals and
blueberry festivals. Cold weather crops, like spinach,
some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and
early onions being harvested in all but the coldest regions. Many farms and markets still
have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.
You may noticed the new appearance to the website! Simpler, cleaner and
mobile-friendly! I'm rolling it out, page by page over the next 2 months. Everything is still here; you can access it from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.
