Welcome to February

love fruit
February may be considered the month of love, but one thing we don’t love is the weather. It’s cold, bleak, and spring feels too far away to fantasize about just yet. Your local produce is likely at its low point if you’re in the northern hemisphere, but there are still a few things growing! Here is what’s in season in the mid-Atlantic region:

  • Apples
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Cilantro
  • Fennel
  • Kohlrabi
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce
  • Mint
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Sage
  • Sorrel
  • Spinach
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Turnips
  • Winter Squash

Here is what to make with that delicious cornucopia of produce, from my own recipe stash:
