What's in season in May

Seasonal Produce for May

Written by Becky

May came a little early this year. My tulips and daffodils have come and gone, I’ve already pulled out my shorts and sandals out of the basement, and our garden is already starting to bud from last years fall planting. But there’s one things that’s come into full bloom just in time… Rhubarb!  One of my favorite tastes of spring is rhubarb.  My sweet friend already dropped a few stems by for me from her bountiful supply.  The rhubarb in my yard is not quite ready but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will ripen this year for the first time (after you plant rhubarb it takes about 3 years to mature enough to be harvested and this is year 3 for us).  What tastes and flavors do you quench for in May?

For this seasonal post I’m changing things up.  Instead of leaving you with a bunch of links to my favorite seasonal recipes for the month, I’m asking you to bring your favorites to the table.  Please leave a comment or link with your favorite May recipes that include any of the ingredients above.  I’m excited to hear back from you.  Happy May!!

How to make the seasonal produce image appear as your wallpaper:

Step 1 Click on Wallpaper Image, this will open the image in a new window on your screen
Step 2 Once image loads on a new page, right click (or ctrl-click) image and select ‘use image as desktop picture’
Step 3 If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.
Special thanks to my creative friend Heidi for the pretty terrarium you see in the picture!

    • mmm!! I’m a huge fan of mint too! I don’t use it often enough in recipes. We use it all summer long for mint juleps and mojitos!
