What's in season in May 2016, and other
Notes for May 2016: 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

Comments from a visitor on
April 18, 2011: "While they had REALLY good apples, and the
gentleman who was riding around in his tractor was very helpful
in locating the best apples, the lady who had rung us up for the
160 lbs. of apples we picked and half gallon honey we bought
couldnOpen: 't have been more rude to us. Considering we were
picking apples with 5 elderly men and women and 4 kids, we were
moving as fast as we could go. I have no idea if this woman owns
the farm, but we will try it one more time and give them the
benefit of the doubt. Maybe she was having a bad day? No matter.
The apples are very good and we never mind blemishes as long as
they are on a non-sprayed apple and kissed by genuine sunshine!
The honey was good. Pure because there was a honeybee floating
in the top! Love it! Wish they would have allowed me to bottle
my own though as the opening of their 1/2 gal. jar is way too
small. All in all, a fun trip for the kids and visiting
