One thing that makes me feel in tune with the changing seasons is eating fresh, in-season produce grown near my home in Southern Oregon. In the late spring, you can find me picking cherries from the trees I planted in my front yard. In the summer, my family and I pick blackberries growing wild in the Oregon countryside. In the fall, you’ll find us picking apples in a local orchard.
Throughout all three of these seasons, our local farmers’ market is a staple for seasonal fruits and vegetables that we don’t grow or pick ourselves. Now that it’s getting warmer, it’s almost time for farmers’ markets to open again. What’s in season near you will vary, but here are some spring treats to be on the lookout for in the coming weeks.
- Garlic Scapes.
If you’re wondering, “What are garlic scapes?” these funny-looking vegetables are worth trying. Garlic scapes (also called green garlic) are the part of the garlic plant that grow above the ground. They look like big curly scallions, but they have a garlicky taste, and they make a delicious pesto.
