May Seasonal Produce Guide

Written by Becky

There’s so much hope and new life in Spring which is exactly what I need, I don’t know about you?!  We had a few warm days then some harsh wintry days thrown at us so, now we’re really craving all that Spring offers.   This time last year we were going through waves of recovery after my son’s surgery. Early Spring often brings with it inconsistency, which was exactly what recovery felt like for us.  May seems like a sure sign that things are on the up-swing. Our rhubarb will be ready soon strawberries might even make their appearance and bright green peas will be enjoyed. These tastes are reminders of hope and health for me this month.  Hope your month is filled with fresh foods and thoughts!

  1. Hi Becky, thanks for the update! Where do you typically buy fava beans? I’ve been craving for them but couldn’t find the anywhere. I’ve tried Harmon’s and Whole Foods.
