Welcome to March

After the Mid-Atlantic got some very weird, late-springlike weather in February, I bet some produce will be coming in a little early. No matter where you are, the vernal equinox is approaching and the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables is growing larger every day! Here is what’s in season in the mid-Atlantic region:

  • Arugula
  • Asparagus
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Chard
  • Cilantro
  • Collards
  • Fennel
  • Garlic Scapes
  • Kale
  • Kohlrabi
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce
  • Mint
  • Morels
  • Mushrooms
  • Nettles
  • Onions
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Pea Shoots
  • Potatoes
  • Radishes
  • Sage
  • Scallions
  • Sorrel
  • Spinach
  • Sweet Potatoes

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

Alton Brown’s Shepherd’s Pie
Green Soup
Mustardy Quinoa with Sausage, Potato, and Arugula
