I love rhubarb too. Rhubarb chutney is great with pork chops.

I've already gotten them a couple of times this season in my CSA box (I'm in Northern California).

I am so jealous. We will be getting strawberries later in the spring, as well as rhubarb, but you sound like you have a large variety and wonderful times!

living in Florida we are have great veggie seasons...Strawberries are waning, cabbage is large and great, onions are fresh out of the ground.....Tomato's are starting to come on the market. Baby squash is tender and the first green beans are ready. My veggie man has been getting me stalks of fresh baby brussel sprout. They are wonderfully tender

Keep on track

I don't know where you live, Brenna, but local seasonal vegetables are what is coming up out of the ground near you. My grandmother grew up on a farm in northern Pennsylvania over a hundred years ago (no electricity or running water) and all they had was what they grew. Potatoes, dry hard squashes, carrots, turnips, rutabagas and onions wintered over in the root cellar, along with apples. She used to say that by April they were going crazy for fresh anything, and cruised the fields awaiting the first dandelion greens, the first early luxury. The farms here in Virginia are starting to plant some things that they can cover, and we'll get early peas in late April. Personally, I'm grateful for the mega mart where I can enjoy the abundance of Chile this time of year, or at least the stuff that tastes good. I find imported blueberries and asparagus to be tasteless. And I used canned tomatoes (or hothouse cherry tomatoes) until I have the real glorious fruit in summer.

We are still in the winter veg season. Even the dandelions (for those who eat them) aren't up yet.

I love the sturdy greens like kale and collards. Sauteed with shallots and a little lean Canadian bacon they're HEAVENLY. They're also delicious in soup.
